Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Glenury Royal Whisky
Johnnie Walker announces the third in a series of special editions-Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Glenury Royal-created using irreplaceable “ghost” whiskies and other incredibly rare whiskies from the unmatched reserves used to create the award-winning Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
This latest addition to the Ghost and Rare Johnnie Walker Blue Label series is made using the exceptional Highland Glenury Royal single malt from the “ghost” distillery of the same name that closed its doors in 1985.
In producing this whiskey, Johnnie Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge and his team also hand-selected two exceptionally rare whiskies from the “ghost” distilleries of Cambus and Pittyvaich that perfectly balance their creamy notes of toffee and caramel with the sumptuous orchard fruit, sweet apple and delicate apricot notes of Glenury Royal.
Five other rare whiskies from Glen Elgin, Inchgower, Glenlossie, Cameronbridge, and Glenkinchie bring waves of vanilla, heather honey, and dried fruit that weave through smooth dark chocolate and layers of hazelnut to create an exploration of the inimitable Glenury Royal, making this limited edition our ultimate yet indulgent.
The result is a whiskey with smooth, nutty layers of dark chocolate, waves of vanilla, heather honey and dried fruit, and underlying notes of creamy caramel-all perfectly balanced by the rich, fruity, sweet apple and delicate apricot character of Glenury Royal .
Johnnie Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge, said, “Shining a light on this hidden treasure of the whiskey world is something we have wanted to do for some time. This delicious new limited edition gives us a wonderful opportunity to explore the extraordinary layers of rich fruit found in every drop of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
