Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost & Rare: Special Release with Brora & Rare
Non Age Statement
Johnnie Walker is introducing a new line of Blue Label expressions featuring whiskies from lost distilleries.
Called Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare, the new line will be a series of limited releases, each created around a different whisky from distilleries that are no longer operational.
The first batch has been built around single malt whisky from Brora, which closed in 1983, but which will reopen by 2020.
Two additional lost distilleries are also included in the blend – grain whisky from Cambusand single malt from Pittyvaich – alongside five ‘rare’ expressions from the existing distilleries of Cameronbridge, Clynelish, Glenkinchie, Glenlossie and Royal Lochnagar.
With Brora at its heart, the first edition of Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare is described as having a ‘light peatiness and subtle sweetness’, with notes of pineapple, hazelnut and dark chocolate.
