A scotch whisky distiller, when asked recently if he made any blends, was gloriously sniffy and dismissive of blended whisky. It would have been interesting to see and hear what he would have made of the Johnnie Walker Directors Blends, which I got to taste last Thursday (November 28) in London.
The brand comes in three flavours – Chocolate Cherry, Chocolate Mint and Chocolate Chili.
Gary Ross, director of cordials and rums for Beam said: “Launching just in time for the holiday entertaining season, JDK & Sons Crave Chocolate Liqueurs provide chocolate lovers and cocktail enthusiasts alike with a new way to delight their senses during one of the most indulgent times of the year."
The products launch this month with an RRP of $17.99 per 750ml bottle. Cocktail recipes are available here.
