Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost & Rare: Pittyvaich Description
We aren’t seers, mystics, or clairvoyant, but once we heard about this one, even we could predict it would be sensational. The bulk of this one arrives from a ghost distillery, that of Pittyvaich. After an 18-year-long stint, it closed in 1993. One of Scotland’s shortest-lived distilleries, it is now one of the rarest. Pairing it with seven other whiskies from Johnnie Walker’s huge reserves of whisky, this celebrates the Speyside style in this elegant, limited edition dram. Get your hands on it before it becomes immaterial!
nose: butterscotch, apples, pears, cinnamon.
palate: stewed orchard fruits, blackberries, fruitcake, sweet berries
