Johnnie Walker Unveils Master’s Ruby Reserve


Share on Pinterest

Johnnie Walker has released Master’s Ruby Reserve – a blend of eight whiskies, all of which are at least 40 years old – in honor of master blender Jim Beveridge and his 40 years in the industry.

Beveridge personally selected all eight whiskies included in Johnnie Walker Master’s Ruby Reserve, which was then bottled at 43% alcohol by volume [86 proof].

“Every whisky that has gone into the creation of this new expression holds a special place in my heart. I worked at each of these distilleries during various points of my career and the flavors and smells of those whiskies transport me back to very happy times throughout my career at Johnnie Walker,” said Beveridge of his selections.

“The ‘ghost’ whiskies from Cambus, Carsebridge and Pittyvaich bring layers of rich fruit flavor. We combined this with the flavors of dark chocolate, plums and cherries found in the wonderfully aged expressions of Royal Lochnagar, Glendullan and Cragganmore, and the soft aromatic sea salt notes of Talisker and Port Ellen, creating a beautiful, full-bodied whisky.”

Only 398 bottles of Johnnie Walker Master’s Ruby Reserve are being made available for $19,600 per bottle.
