Product Description

Pre-Order - Bottles dispatched late April 2020

The second release in Johnnie Walker's Master's Edition series sees a 40 Year Old expression released!  Bottled to honour Johnnie Walker Master Blender Dr. Jim Beveridge OBE’s forty years of exceptional craft and dedication to whisky, the Master’s Ruby Reserve is made from some of the finest Scotch whisky in the Johnnie Walker reserves.  Jim personally selected eight exceptionally rare casks. with all the whiskies used at least forty years old.  Only 398 bottles were produced.

For this celebratory limited-edition, whiskies have been chosen from the silent distilleries of Cambus, Carsebridge, Pittyvaich and Port Ellen, all perfectly balanced with highly-aged expressions from Talisker, Royal Lochnagar, Glendullan and Cragganmore. Presented in a beautiful, hand-crafted golden-red Baccarat crystal decanter. This emblematic colour is a tribute to Jim’s ruby anniversary and a hallmark of Baccarat’s most exceptional pieces.

This exquisite whisky explores the rarest casks in the Johnnie Walker reserves and is the perfect choice for both discerning whisky drinkers and connoisseurs.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, there are 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. On the palate, this whisky is full-bodied and rich. 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 with a lingering finish of pepper and demerara sugars.
