The John Walker is rich in many of the ways that count in the world of whisky - at least in some circles - color, taste and price tag.
A limited edition blended whisky from the Johnnie Walker label, it is a tribute to the founder of the brand, created from rare stock from nine of the Scottish distilleries that operated in the 1800s during John Walker's day.
This includes some of the last remaining barrels from two that are now closed.
The John Walker is bottled in individually numbered, hand-blown Baccarat crystal decanters.
The end result is smoky, thanks to the 100-year-old wood oak casks it was stored in, with undertones of honey and spice. It goes nicely with blue cheese at the start of a meal, and even better with chocolate truffles at the end.
As Johnnie Walker's premium product, it packs a punch not only in terms of flavor but also price.
A bottle will set the whisky lover back $4500 and availability might be a bit of a problem. Only 330 bottled worldwide.
