Diageo owned Johnnie Walker has introduced a new super blend to their existing US portfolio named John Walker & Sons Odyssey Blended Scotch Whisky. Previously available in Asia and selected global markets, the blend is a mix crafted from three rare handpicked single malts to create the first triple malt Scotch whisky from the House of Walker.
The unique blend uses the following whiskies The John Walker, Johnnie Walker XR 21 and King George V Blended Scotch Whiskies. The blend is a creation of Master Blender Jim Beveridge using founder Sir Alexander Walker’s hand-written notes. Its taste profile consists of flavors fresh citrus, smooth honey and creamy caramel. Blended and married in European oak casks to combine the flavors, the blend offers an extensive experience with exceptional smoothness.
Master Blender Jim Beveridge said he searched many distilleries in Scotland for the perfect three whiskies for John Walker & Sons Odyssey. “The extraordinary single malts I’ve chosen have the right provenance and pedigree to create the aromas, tastes, flavors and sensations that Sir Alexander was looking for when he created the original blend almost 80 years ago,” he added.
The John Walker & Sons Odyssey comes in a crystal glass decanter bottle interpreted from their legendary 1932 “nautical” decanter created for Johnnie Walker Swing Blended Scotch Whisky. The bottle can rotate 360 degrees within the box and always rests in an upright position. It’s inspired by a gyroscope, as the bottle always remains steady while the world revolves around it.
The House of Walker recommends that the blend be enjoyed neat or with a dash of water. John Walker & Sons Odyssey is now available nationwide with a suggested retail price of $1,100 (750ml).
