Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare 2nd Edition / Port Ellen

Johnnie Walker is arguably the most popular and recognisable blended Scotch on the market. Its core range includes the standard Red Label and Black Label, introduced in 1909 and named, quite simply, after their packaging. The iconic “striding man” motif was first drawn by Tom Browne the year prior. The premium Blue Label brand was introduced in 1992, and is composed using malt whisky from some of the most sought after distilleries in Diageo's extensive portfolio.

A limited release of Johnnie Walker's most premium brand. The Ghost and Rare blends focus on Scotland's lost and sorely missed distilleries, with this first release built around malt from the legendary Brora. The second release in a series of limited edition “ghost” whiskies is Port Ellen. Port Ellen is a “ghost” distillery that had shut its doors in 1983.

    Nose:    Exceptionally balanced with layers of creamy vanilla sweetness.

    Taste:    Rolling waves of waxy citrus, rich malt and tropical fruit flavours.

    Finish:   The unmistakable lingering finish of Port Ellen maritime smokiness.

Note: Product has come from a private collection, minor markings are inevitable and collectors should have reasonable expectations in this regard.
