Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Port Dundas has been carefully crafted by Master Blender Emma Walker and her small team of expert whisky makers. Using eight handpicked whiskies from the four corners of Scotland, including three irreplaceable “Ghost’ Whiskies and five incredibly rare expressions, from Johnnie Walker Blue Label Reserves.
The fifth in this much=talked-about limited edition series, Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Port Dundas, draws on rare casks from the Glasgow ‘ghost’ distillery of Port Dundas, once a powerhouse of the whisky worlds, which closed its doors in 2010. Other ‘ghost’ whiskies from Cambus and Brora distilleries are balanced with exceptional rare single malts.
Flavour: Emma Walker chose to shine a light on these incredible expression from Port Dundas, choosing a small number of distinctive, aged whiskies from our reserves, all matured in two differing wood types to add depth and layers to the blend – whiskies from aged second fill American oak bringing a touch of creamy vanilla, and Scotch from first fill highly charred American oak bringing a subtle wood spice.
Tasting Notes: Creamy, wood notes from Port Dundas embrace the vanilla and soft smoke from the ‘ghost’ whiskies of Cambus and original stocks of Brora. Other very rare whiskies from Cameronbridge and Glenkinchie reveal notes of spiced apples alongside Clynelish, Dailuaine and Auchroisk, bringing aromas of peaches and berries.
