Product details

Throughout his forty years at Johnnie Walker, Master Blender Jim Beveridge OBE has worked with incredible whiskies from some of Scotland’s most famous distilleries. For this celebratory Scotch, Jim has hand-selected just eight forty-year-old whiskies that hold a truly unique and special place in his heart. This celebratory limited edition bottling includes whiskies from the ‘ghost’ distilleries of Cambus, Carsebridge, Pittyvaich and Port Ellen. These rare whiskies are balanced beautifully with highly-aged expressions from the distilleries of Talisker, Royal Lochnagar, Glendullan and Cragganmore. Johnnie Walker Master’s Ruby Reserve is Jim’s personal ode to some of the whiskies that have left an indelible mark on his career. A gift for whisky collectors and luxury connoisseurs alike. This is an extremely rare release with just 398 bottles produced. Presented in a ruby-coloured Baccarat decanter, this exquisite whisky explores the rarest casks in the unparalleled Johnnie Walker reserves of maturing whisky and is the perfect choice for both whisky lovers and luxury spirit drinkers.

Tasting notes

Initial layers of Talisker and Port Ellen’s warming maritime smoke combine with cocoa nibs, perfectly balanced by the berries and currants of Glendullan and Carsebridge. Notes of caramelised apples, pears and maraschino cherries emerge. Lingering finish of pepper and demerara sugars.


The Masters of Flavour boasts a unique lineage. Each of the exquisite, limited releases within the Masters series is designed with its own specific theme in mind, paying hommage to the rich history behind the Johnnie Walker business. The Johnnie Walker Masters series is a limited-edition collection of ultra-luxury blends utilizing some of the oldest and rarest whiskies from the reserves. The first of the Johnnie Walker Masters series, The John Walker Masters’ Edition, was released in 2018. But really if you want to find the origins of this project you need to go back further still. It was about 25 years ago that the Johnnie Walker blenders recognised that these individual whiskies were very special. The decision was made then to put them aside for special use, allowing each of them to continue to mature in their casks, knowing that, in time, something even more remarkable would emerge.
