This limited edition from Johnnie Walker is crafted by Master Blender Jim Beveridge and a small team of blenders using eight hand-picked whiskies. With liquid from the lost distillery of Glenury Royal at its heart, this third edition of Blue Label Ghost & Rare features liquid from two other closed distilleries, Cambus and Pittyvaich, as well as rare malt from Glen Elgin, Inchgower, Glenlossie, Cameronbridge and Glenkinchie. Presented at a strength of 43.8% abv, each bottle is individually numbered.
The nose is sweet and nutty with vanilla and dark chocolate. The palate brings rich fruity notes of green apple characteristic of Glenury Royal, as well as creamy buttersoctch toffee and heather honey, before a long and satisfying finish.
