Diageo has added to its Blenders' Batch experimental Johnnie Walker range with three new expressions. The first, Johnnie Walker Blenders' Batch Wine Cask Blend, matures blended Scotch in former wine casks and will be available in selected global markets from next month. It was created by Johnnie Walker blender Aimée Gibson, who said the new blend targets consumers new to Scotch.

The other two expressions, Rum Cask Finish and Espresso Roast, will only be available in selected global bars from October. Rum Cask Finish is finished in casks that previously held Caribbean pot still rum, while Espresso Roast has notes of rich coffee and dark chocolate.

All three limited-edition Johnnie Walker Blenders' Batch whiskies were unveiled at Diageo's World Class Bartender of the Year Final in Mexico, which kicked off this week.

Diageo launched its first Blenders' Batch expression, Red Rye Finish, last year. Earlier this year, it followed up with Blenders' Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish.
