Sometimes the great global supermarket likes to tease you with shit you will never, ever be able to sample. Such is the case with Johnnie Walker’s 2012 “Directors Blend” whisky, an exclusive expression that cannot be purchased anywhere. It is only for those who personally get drunk with Johnnie in a secret Highlands lair, nestled deep below some remote Scottish castle. Crafted by Johnnie Walker’s Master Blender — the unbelievably named Jim Beverage — the expression will be limited to only 504 individually numbered bottles. So basically you will never lay your filthy pedestrian hands on a bottle, so don’t even bother. Props to the design company LOVE who created the labels, which emphasize a toast instead of branding. Now if Johnnie ever found himself in Venice Beach stumbling drunkenly around Abbot Kinney, maybe we could charm him with some tales of ribaldry and get on his good side. What say you, Walker?
