Johnnie Walker’s Australian ambassador Sean Baxter (below) conducted the tasting, speaking passionately about the work of Johnnie Walker’s Master Blender Jim Beveridge in creating the 2016 Edition, the third in a series that showcases the innovative spirit and craft of the blenders behind John Walker & Sons Blended Scotch Whiskies – the prestige range from Johnnie Walker.

Those in attendance also tasted the 2015 Edition for comparison, noting the more pronounced fruitiness and peat qualities of the ’15 versus the prominent honey notes in the 2016.

A limited quantity of the 8,888 individually numbered decanters of the 2016 edition are available worldwide. In Australia, these are exclusively available through Dan Murphy’s.
