This fifth release in the multi award-winning Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare series explores the character of exceptional and rare whiskies from one of world’s most famous Grain Whisky distilleries, the Glasgow “ghost” distillery of Port Dundas. 

 

The Johnnie Walker team of expert whisky makers, led by Johnnie Walker Master Blender Dr Emma Walker, handpicked the most distinctive expressions of maturing whisky from Port Dundas for this new limited edition.  

 

Emma chose to shine a light on these incredible expressions from Port Dundas, selecting a small number of distinctive, aged whiskies from our reserves, all matured in two differing wood types to add depth and layers to the blend – whiskies from aged second fill American oak bringing a touch of creamy vanilla, and Scotch from first fill highly charred American oak bringing a subtle wood spice.

 

To complement the fragrant wood spice character of Port Dundas, Emma and her team hand-selected two other ‘ghost’ whiskies from the distilleries of Cambus and Brora, before combining these with other very rare Scotch from five iconic distilleries - crafting something truly exceptional.
