New Release: Johnnie Walker Blue Label - Ghost & Rare
We are delighted today to offer Johnnie Walker Blue Label “Ghost & Rare”. The first in a series of special bottlings, the Ghost & Rare project was launched in 2017 to bring together incredible single malts from closed “ghost” distilleries and blend them with some of the rarest casks in Scotland; celebrating the absolute best that Scotch whisky, in all its guises, has to offer. Each new edition will be crafted with one irreplaceable “ghost” whisky at its core, and will be produced in a very limited run, making them collectible from the outset. Kicking off with a bang, the inaugural Ghost & Rare has, in both actual spirit and style, the celebrated Highland Single Malt, Brora, at its heart.

Crafted by Johnnie Walker Master Distiller, Jim Beveridge, it is a rich, complex, velvety smooth blend of eight treasured Scotch whiskies which, alongside Brora, includes "ghost" whiskies from the silent distilleries Cambus and Pittyvaich. The additional five whiskies completing the blend are rare expressions of malt and grain from the working distilleries of Royal Lochnagar, Clynelish, Glenkinchie, Glenlossie and Cameronbridge. The essential flavour of the whisky is ultimately born out of Brora’s subtle sophisticated sweetness and light peatiness, satin in texture and balance, but with dried citrus peel and desiccated pineapple, sea salt, fresh hazelnut and dark chocolate, all culminating in a sweet smoke finish. With Burns Night just around the corner, this whisky is a genuine homage to Scotland.
