Celebrating 200 Years. Johnnie Walker began its pioneering history in 1820 when young John Walker used the money from the sale of the family farm to set up a grocer’s shop. Most grocers stocked single malts but they were inconsistent. John started blending the whiskies together so they tasted just as good every time. New generations of the family developed the whisky until 1909 when Johnnie Walker Black Label was born. The leading illustrator of the day sketched a logo and the Striding Man was created. Today, Johnnie Walker is the biggest whisky brand in the world and its slogan has been embraced everywhere as a joyful expression of optimism - Keep Walking.

The John Walker is an elegant, triple matured Scotch crafted using rare whiskies from nine ancient distilleries that existed during the lifetime of our founder John Walker (1805-1857). This elegant and refined whisky expertly brings together rare expressions from the now silent “ghost” distilleries of Glen Albyn, Port Dundas and Cambus, along with six of Scotland’s most historic distilleries - Cameronbridge, Cardhu, Mortlach, Clynelish, Dailuaine and Talisker.

This unique whisky is triple matured. A long, first maturation in individual casks allows the specific flavours unique to each distillery to develop. A second maturation expertly combines the individual casks and flavours into separate single malt and grain vattings. Finally, these vattings are married together in a bespoke cask, made by coopers from oak staves over a century old, to create a wonderfully balanced blend.

To celebrate this last ever limited release whisky, The John Walker, Last Cask, is beautifully presented in a handmade Baccarat crystal decanter, with a bespoke design by Hand Engraver of Glass to Her Majesty the Queen, Philip Lawson Johnston.

Appearance Amber gold.
Nose Delicate honey sweetness and fresh citrus notes, deepening to mature, rich fruit aromas.
Palate Layers of vanilla, delicate honey sweetness, subtle spice and a soft fruit character. Waves of fresh citrus fruits and apricots, combining beautifully with layers of fresh orchard fruits. Notes of dried fruits, oak and tangerines develop before culminating into a warm and peppery smokiness.
