The first in a brand-new series of Special Releases, Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare is crafted using irreplaceable whiskies from ‘ghost’ distilleries that have long since closed, blended with other exceptionally rare malt and grain Scotch Whiskies. These special editions will each focus on one remarkably rare whisky from a distillery that shapes the distinctive flavours of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
Crafted by Johnnie Walker Master Blender, Dr. Jim Beveridge, Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare includes three ‘ghost’ whiskies from the silent distilleries of Cambus and Pittyvaich, and the Highland Single Malt, Brora - which lies at the heart of this special release bringing a deliciously light peatiness and sophisticated subtle sweetness.
These three ghost whiskies have been blended with five rare expressions of malt and grains from the existing distilleries of Royal Lochnagar, Clynelish, Glenkinchie, Glenlossie and Cameronbridge.
The result is a wonderfully smooth Scotch, with the fruity sweetness of pineapple, rich notes of hazelnut and dark chocolate and a subtle smoky finish.
