Johnnie Walker has released the fifth and final blend in its John Walker & Sons Private Collection, a limited-edition 28-year-aged whisky called Midnight Blend.
Johnnie Walker’s 28 Year Old Midnight Blend is made from a blend of whiskies which have been aged for a minimum of 28 years, and the drink is intended to be enjoyed after dinner.
3,888 limited-edition, individually numbered bottles of the 42.8% ABV whisky have been released, and the blend features butterscotch, caramel and toffee flavours, balanced with a fruitiness and touch of spice.
The John Walker & Sons Private Collection was launched in 2014, and features a range of small batch, limited releases crafted from valuable parts of the Johnnie Walker reserves.
Johnnie Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge said: “Whiskies aged for 28 years are rare and very special.
“In our search to find the flavours and characteristics necessary for a rich, indulgent Scotch like Midnight Blend, we were very lucky to have access to some of the most mature reserves drawn from the four corners of Scotland.
“Each individual malt and grain used in the final whisky adds layers of flavour to the 28 Year Old Midnight Blend, leaving hints of fruit, sweet and spice and making it a wonderful final addition to the Private Collection.”
Bottles of Johnnie Walker’s 28 Year Old Midnight Blend will be available from November at selected locations, and will have a suggested retail price of $750 per bottle.
The release of this new blend follows on from the release of the 50-year-aged Masters’ Edition and the Game of Thrones-inspired White Walker whiskies earlier this month.
