Expertly blended, handpicked whiskies bring the flavours of Umami

Bottles and serves

Only one in 25,000 casks succeeds in bringing this elusive character to life. Johnnie Walker Master Blender, Emma Walker and Chef Kei Kobayashi handpicked whiskies like they were ingredients – from salty, smoky notes to savoury, meaty flavours.


Tasting notes

This boundary pushing innovation in whisky is balanced with sweet and savoury flavours, including notes of blood orange and red berries, with sweet wood spice, a touch of smoked meat, a hint of salt and pepper before rounding off in a long, sweet, fruity finish.
