Johnnie Walker Master's Ruby Reserve 40 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky, 70cl

Throughout his forty years at Johnnie Walker, Master Blender Jim Beveridge OBE has worked with incredible whiskies from some of Scotland’s most famous distilleries. For this celebratory Scotch, Jim has hand-selected just eight forty-year-old whiskies that hold a truly unique and special place in his heart. This celebratory limited edition bottling includes whiskies from the ‘ghost’ distilleries of Cambus, Carsebridge, Pittyvaich and Port Ellen. These rare whiskies are balanced beautifully with highly-aged expressions from the distilleries of Talisker, Royal Lochnagar, Glendullan and Cragganmore.

Johnnie Walker Master’s Ruby Reserve is Jim’s personal ode to some of the whiskies that have left an indelible mark on his career. A gift for whisky collectors and luxury connoisseurs alike. This is an extremely rare release with just 398 bottles produced. Presented in a ruby-coloured Baccarat decanter, this exquisite whisky explores the rarest casks in the unparalleled Johnnie Walker reserves of maturing whisky and is the perfect choice for both whisky lovers and luxury spirit drinkers.

Serving Suggestion: Best enjoyed neat or with a dash of water.

Body

Full-bodied and rich.

Nose

Rich layers of treacle toffee from Cambus, caramelised apple and autumnal soft fruit from Pittyvaich, before waves of dark chocolate, plums and cherries slowly unfold. Notes of dark fruits from Royal Lochnagar and Cragganmore combine with pink peppercorn spice and sea salt.

Palate

Initial layers of Talisker and Port Ellen’s warming maritime smoke combine with cocoa nibs, perfectly balanced by the berries and currants of Glendullan and Carsebridge. Notes of caramelised apples, pears and maraschino cherries emerge.

Finish

Lingering finish of pepper and demerara sugars.
