With only 3,888 limited-edition, individually numbered collectible decanters available, 28-Year-Old Midnight Blend will officially hit shelves in November. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering at select retailers located throughout Johnnie Walker’s distribution network in the U.S. Prost!
