Johnnie Walker, Blenders Batch, Espresso Roast - The new, fresh Blender’s Batch offering from Johnnie Walker is finally here at The Heritage Wine Bar...
After 11 years in the making we are excited to be pouring and mixing this delicious drop for you.
11 years ago Jim Beverage and his team of 12 expert blenders started on a mission to experiment with different styles of maturation and flavour development. The lead blender on this amazing expression is Jim’s newest recruit Aimee Gibson. By utilising much darker malted barley than ever before (think stout vs pale ale), she has been able to develop rich coffee and chocolate notes that carry the whiskey. This heavily malted whiskey was then blended with other grain and malt whiskies from refill, re-juvenated and 1st fill ex bourbon casks. The were used to help accentuate and complement the distinctive character of the heavily malted whiskey.
James recommends trying this bad boy in a darker twist on a espresso martini.
