The world’s top-selling Scotch brand has extended its newest line.

Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch is a a series of experimental Scotch whiskies. The first release from this new line was Triple Grain American Oak. The brand has followed that up with Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish.

Inspired by the time that the brand’s master blender Jim Beveridge spent blending bourbons and ryes in Kentucky in the 1990s, Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish has been drawn from over 200 whisky samples, aged in first-fill bourbon casks and finished for up to six months in former rye casks.

Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish is 40% ABV and is available in a 1-L. bottle for a suggested price of $52.50.
