Tasting Notes: Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost And Rare Pittyvaich
Vital Stats: 87.6 proof (43.8% A.B.V.). A blend of 8 rare whiskies from Johnnie Walker’s reserves. Ghost whiskies included are Pittyvaich, Port Dundas, and Carsebridge. Rare malt and grain whiskies included are from Mannochmore, Auchroisk, Cragganmore, Strathmill, and Royal Lochnagar.
Appearance: Clear, with a bright gold translucent hue. Viscous on the sides of the tasting glass with clearly defined rivulets forming.
Nose: Honeycomb and propolis at a medium approach. Green apple is very apparent with a closer inhale. Some peach and pear notes make a presence at a second inspection. Similar to standing in an orchard in early fall.
Palate: Balanced sweetness with a touch spice. All of the hints that the aroma started with are fully realized when tasted. Honeycomb, green apple, with just a little touch of some floral notes. Cinnamon rounds it off with a little zip of spice on a medium finish.
