Johnnie Walker The Commemorative 1920 Edition

Johnnie Walker House has just launched the Johnnie Walker The Commemorative 1920 Edition. This edition marks the fifth release in the Epic Dates Collection by Johnnie Walker, paying tribute to the milestone year when John Walker & Sons whisky blends travelled from the four corners of Scotland to 120 countries across the globe. Each edition in the Epic Dates Collection celebrates a momentous year for Johnnie Walker. From humble beginnings in a grocer’s shop in Kilmarnock in 1820, 1920 marked the 100th year since John Walker began the family business, and when his son Alexander Walker fulfilled the ambition of inaugurating Johnnie Walker as one of the world’s first truly international brands.

Only 540 bottles of Johnnie Walker The Commemorative 1920 Edition have been created, with each individually numbered and signed by Master Blender Jim Beveridge. The blend, crafted specially using a modern interpretation of a classic technique used in 1920, is also impossible to replicate in the future as it includes whiskies from silent distilleries. One such whisky is Rosebank, which delivers top notes of fresh fruits and a sweetness from the ex-bourbon oak casks in which it was originally matured to the elegant blend.

Featuring a fresh, fruity fragrance with floral hints of heather and sweet vanilla, Johnnie Walker The Commemorative 1920 Edition offers a smooth and welcoming rich flavor. Almonds, toffee and fudge combine with fresh fruit on the palate, giving way to a gentle Highland smoke finish – a true celebration of the blends of the time. Best savoured neat, with a glass of ice cold water on the side, this extraordinary blend is crafted for the contemporary tastes of whisky consumers wherever they are in the world.

This limited edition will be available in Johnnie Walker Houses in Singapore, Taiwan, Mumbai, Schiphol, Israel, Korea, and Auckland, with RRSP at £1,970 per bottle.
