Johnnie Walker has launched the fifth and final edition in the John Walker & Sons Private Collection: 28 Year Old Midnight Blend.
Only 3,888 individually numbered decanters of this Scotch have been released. Made for “after-dinner, or approaching the ‘midnight’ moment,” the company says, 28 Year Old Midnight Blend features flavors of butterscotch, caramel and toffee, with a fruitiness and touch of spice.
Working alongside fellow blender Craig Wallace, Johnnie Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge sampled hundreds of single malt and grain whiskies to eventually select a few whiskies with the character necessary for a Scotch this “smooth and indulgent,” the company says. The John Walker & Sons Private Collection was first launched in 2014 and features small batch, limited releases crafted using casks from the most valuable parts of the Johnnie Walker reserves, the company says.
Johnnie Walker 28 Year Old Midnight Blend is 42.8% ABV. It will be available from November at select locations with a recommended retail price of $750 per 750-ml. bottle.
