John Walker & Sons’ portfolio of Scotch whisky has a new addition – John Walker & Sons Odyssey. Inspired by Sir Alexander Walker’s passion for epic journeys, the Odyssey is crafted from three rare, handpicked single malts to create the first triple malt Scotch whisky from the House of Walker.
Developed by Master Blender Jim Beveridge using Sir Alexander Walker‘s hand-written notes, it is a lavish blend which successfully balances hints of fresh citrus, smooth honey and creamy caramel flavors for a distinctive taste profile. It has been blended and married in European oak casks to combine the flavors of the three rare malts and provide an expansive, multi-layered experience.
“I searched a number of distilleries in Scotland for the perfect three whiskies to blend for John Walker & Sons Odyssey,” said Master Blender Jim Beveridge. “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.”
The crystal-grade glass decanter for John Walker & Sons Odyssey is an ultra-modern interpretation of Sir Alexander Walker’s legendary 1932 ‘nautical’ decanter bottle 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
