John Walker & Sons 28 Year Old Bicentenary Blend Description

Johnnie Walker founder, John Walker, first opened the doors of a small grocery store 200 years ago in Kilmarnock that would go on to change the world of whisky forever. John Walker & Sons Bicentenary Blend is an exclusive whisky that celebrates this journey that began in 1820.

To create this limited and luxurious blend, Master Blender Jim Beveridge and his team of whisky makers have drawn inspiration from the thrilling flavours listed on an original inventory from John Walker’s store. Using this as a window into the world where John started, they have meticulously crafted a complex whisky with rich layers that re-imagines the kaleidoscope of exotic flavours that shaped our founder’s imagination. Rare and exceptional whiskies, including ghost stocks from the distilleries of Pittyvaich, Cambus and Port Ellen, all at least 28 years old, have been explored to craft a whisky that reimagines the exotic flavours of the 1820s. 

On the nose it’s a complex, rich whisky with layers of flavour in which an array of fruit aromas come together in harmony, balanced with warming spices and a soft, rolling smoke redolent of the rich array of exotic goods on offer. The first sip opens the doors to reveal delicious layers of spice mingling with sweet honey and rich molasses inspired by the rows of tempting jars. Waves of sultanas, cocoa beans and herbal notes are carried on wisps of soft smoke leading you further down the aisles of John’s store with every sip. Finish: A sweet spice lingers as the door closes behind you.
