If a fine Johnnie Walker whiskey is what you crave, don’t miss out on the ‘Masters of Flavour.’ A concluding edition of the iconic Master series, the rare Scotch celebrates the art of whisky-making like no other!
Worked on by Jim Beveridge along with Malt Master – Donna Anderson, Cask Master – James Carson, and Distillation Master – Douglas Murray, the resulting blend is nothing short of luxury. It is crafted from the finest maturing whiskies in the Johnnie Walker reserves that have been aged for nearly 48 years and features notes of cinnamon-infused apples combined with star anise, crushed peppercorn, and warming oak embers, along with hints of baked caramel and rich butterscotch.
The Masters of Flavour is the third and final whisky in the Johnnie Walker Masters series of extremely rare Scotch, which also includes last year’s Johnnie Walker Master’s Ruby Reserve and the John Walker Masters’ Edition.
Commenting on it, Jim Beveridge said, “It is fascinating to craft a Scotch that pays tribute to each of the four main steps in whisky-making – malting, distilling, cask maturation, and blending – to shine a light on how each craft contributes something very special to the extraordinary flavors that Scotch has to offer, from grain to glass.”
To create the luxe blend, Beveridge selected rare expressions from the iconic “ghost” distilleries of Glyn Albyn, Port Dundas, Brora, and Glenury Royal and rounded them off with the iconic distilleries of Cameronbridge, Blair Athol, and Dalwhinnie. With an ABV of 41.8%, the Johnnie Walker Masters of Flavour is available in limited quantities (288 bottles) for a retail price of $26,756 (approx.).
