Johnnie Walker released Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Glenury Royal, the third in the series of special releases crafted using irreplaceable “ghost” whiskies from a small number of iconic distilleries that closed many years ago.
The exceptional whisky is made of the Highland single malt Glenury Royal, from the distillery of the same name. Established in 1825 by Captain Robert Barclay, the distillery was recognized as one of only three Scottish distilleries to enjoy a royal title. Although closed since 1985, the distillery’s rare spirit lives on in the dwindling stocks of this incredible “ghost” whisky.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Glenury Royal also includes two exceptionally rare whiskies from the “ghost” distilleries of Cambus and Pittyvaich. Two blends perfectly combine creamy toffee and butterscotch notes with the sumptuous orchard fruits, sweet apple and delicate apricot character of Glenury Royal.
Five other rare whiskies from Glen Elgin, Inchgower, Glenlossie, Cameronbridge and Glenkinchie enrich the whisky with sweet flavors of vanilla, heather honey and dried fruits. There are also hints of smooth dark chocolate and nutty layers.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Glenury Royal is bottled at an ABV of 43.8% and is available globally from October 2019 priced at approximately $345 for a 70cl bottle. Each bottle in this special release is individually numbered.
