The Story

The third limited release of the John Walker & Sons Private Collection series, the 2016 Edition puts honey in the limelight. A delicate balance of honey sweetness and soft fruity notes, this edition shines with the brilliance and radience that rare Single Grain Scotch whiskies bring to the blend. Only 8,888 individually numbered, deep amber-coloured glass decanters are released worldwide.

The Making

Over 100 casks of rare Single Grain Scotch whiskies, some from distilleries that have long since closed, have been selected by Master Blender Jim Beveridge for this blend. Set exquisitely against a Highland Single Malt Whisky from his private stock, the whiskies are masterfully harmonised to accentuate their distillery characters, resulting in a gloriously intense yet restrained final blend.
