The Perfection of Blending Just Two Whiskies

Jim blended just two whiskies - the lighter Single Grain Whisky from one of the oldest distilleries used to blend Johnnie Walker, Camronbridge, married to the full flavoured Single Malt Whisky from one of the youngest distilleries in Scotland, Roseisle, to create a spectacularly rich, smooth Scotch Whisky that embodies the craft of blending.

This blend pays homage to the Johnnie Walker past and celebrates the brand's journey into the future.

The Tasting Experience

A radiant, pale gold whisky with a light to medium body. The nose reveals a delightful medley of fresh summer fruit complemented by a velvety vanilla sweetness. On the palate, luscious baked caramel and butterscotch notes are interwoven with crisp fruit, delicate elderflower and cherry blossom, all embraced by the seasoned oak, culminating in a soothing and gently sweet finale. The skill in bringing two voices together in perfect harmony is what makes this whisky so compelling – the floral orchard fruits of the grain complementing the richer single Malt tones beautifully.
