Johnnie Walker Blenders Batch Red Rye Whisky is the new spin on Red Label, smooth, sweet & smoky; designed to make the perfect Manhattan.

The experimental blend has been created by the brand’s team of blenders, led by master blender Jim Beveridge, and is one of the results of ongoing experiments into flavour that take place at the brand’s home in Scotland.
Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Red Rye Finish includes malt and grain whiskies aged in first-fill bourbon casks and finished in rye casks.
