DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Queen Elizabeth II is marking 60 years on the throne. Well, Johnny Walker wanted to do something special for her. The whiskey label released a new blend called Diamond Jubilee. It's been distilling since 1952 and a bottle costs $200,000. No free samples here. For all that money, you might wonder what it tastes like. Well, according to a review in the Whiskey Advocate, it's got a velvet texture, a bitter perfume of spices, and a score of only 93 out of 100. It's MORNING EDITION.
