Johnnie Walker is arguably the most popular and recognisable blended Scotch on the market. Its core range includes the standard Red Label and Black Label, introduced in 1909 and named, quite simply, after their packaging. The iconic “striding man” motif was first drawn by Tom Browne the year prior. The premium Blue Label brand was introduced in 1992, and is composed using malt whisky from some of the most sought after distilleries in Diageo’s extensive portfolio. Today, many of these distilleries are only still with us due to their importance to the Johnnie Walker blends during the difficult 1980s period for the industry. A true champion of the whisky world.

A limited release of Johnnie Walker's most premium brand. The Ghost and Rare blends focus on Scotland's lost and sorely missed distilleries, with this second release in 2018 built around malt from the legendary Port Ellen. Other "Ghosts" rearing their welcome heads from the annals of whisky history is grain from lost Carsebridge and Caledonian.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Fruity with fragrant smokiness – delicate and refined rather than a peat monster. Fresh and baked apples are joined by pears and waxed jackets. Vanilla cream notes develop and then tend to custard, poured over wax-polished oak.

Palate: Vanilla sponge cake and ashy smoke. The apples are back and sat on a bed of damp leaves. Sweet floral notes float above – hints of lavender and Parma violet – and oaky spice sits underneath.

Finish: Long and ashy, with fruity notes slowly fading.
