Blended Scotch Whisky
70cl / 43.8%
Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Pittyvaich was released in 2021 as part of the continuing Ghost and Rare series celebrating the rare and lost distilleries that contribute to the Johnnie Walker brand's globe-bestriding success.
Pittyvaich distillery opened in 1974 but was closed in 1993 and the distillery's whisky was rarely bottled as a single malt in its brief lifetime.
This Ghost and Rare Pittyvaich Johnnie Walker Blue has Pittyvaich single malt at the heart of its malt content, supplemented by other single malts from Cragganmore, Royal Lochnagar, Strathmill, Mannochmore and Auchroisk, blended with long-aged single grain whiskies from Carsebridge and Port Dundas.
Ghost And Rare - Pittyvaich
Official Tasting Notes
Alongside the distinctive autumnal character from Pittyvaich whiskies, the sweet and fruit notes of fresh apple beautifully balanced with the delicate subtle sweetness of honeycomb and soft wood from the “ghost” whiskies of Port Dundas and Carsebridge.
Other very rare whiskies bring aromas of dark fruit and berries before revealing gentle butterscotch, stewing orchard fruits and a dash of cinnamon.
