Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Port Ellen is the second edition in a series of special releases created by Johnnie Walker Master Blender Dr. Jim Beveridge. The blended Scotch has been built around whisky from the lost Islay distillery of Port Ellen, which closed in 1983. The rest of the blend is comprised of ‘incredibly rare’ malts from Mortlach, Dailuaine, Cragganmore, Blair Athol and Oban.
Johnnie Walker says that the blend is “exceptionally balanced with layers of creamy vanilla sweetness on the nose, rolling waves of waxy citrus, rich malt and tropical fruit flavors on the palate, and the unmistakable lingering finish of Port Ellen maritime smokiness.”
Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost And Rare Port Ellen come bottled at 43.8% ABV in a custom design of dark blue bottle with a map of Scotland showing each of the distilleries used in the blend. The whisky will be sold in a custom dark blue bottle with a map of Scotland, showing each of the distilleries used in the blend and will be available in the fall, nationwide, for $349.99 per bottle while supplies last.
