John Walker & Sons Private Collection series 2014 Edition Unique Smoke Blend


Price: Not for sale

THE STORY

The first in the highly limited, John Walker & Sons Private Collection series, the 2014 Edition is a supremely sophisticated expression of smoke, from three of Scotland’s most celebrated regions: bold and peaty Islay smoke, fresh maritime Island smoke and a sweet, subtle Highland smoke. Just 8,888 individually numbered, dark blue glass decanters are available worldwide.

THE MAKING

For the 2014 Edition to bloom in its full smoky glory, Master Blender Jim Beveridge specially selected 29 casks from his private reserve of irrepleaceable and experimental whiskies. The characters of these rare whiskies let the smoky heart of the blend beat with exceptional vitality and intensity of flavour.
