Description

Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Pittyvaich takes you on a journey through Scotland’s whisky heritage. The irreplaceable malts from the legendary Speyside distillery, Pittyvaich, which closed its doors in 1993 after a brief 19-year run, form the heart of this exquisite blend.

On the Nose

The initial aroma is an enticing invitation. Delicate orchard fruits, reminiscent of crisp apples and sweet apricots, take center stage. These bright notes are interwoven with a subtle creaminess, hinting at toffee and butterscotch. Imagine walking through an orchard on a crisp autumn day, with the sweet scent of ripening fruits mingling with the comforting aroma of freshly baked pastries.

On the Palate

The first sip unfolds a symphony of flavors. The Pittyvaich malt character takes the lead, offering a smooth and complex base. Layers of vanilla, reminiscent of rich vanilla bean ice cream, emerge alongside the sweetness of heather honey. Hints of dried fruits, like raisins and figs, add a touch of depth and intrigue. The creamy toffee and butterscotch notes from the nose reappear on the palate, creating a harmonious continuity between aroma and taste.

The Finish

As the whisky lingers on the tongue, a luxurious wave of dark chocolate unfolds. This decadent note is complemented by a subtle nuttiness, reminiscent of toasted almonds or hazelnuts. The finish is smooth and incredibly long-lasting, leaving a warming sensation and a lingering memory of the complex flavors experienced throughout.

Imagine sipping this whisky by a crackling fireplace on a cool evening. The initial sweetness gives way to a sophisticated warmth, mirroring the experience of a cozy fire. Each sip unveils new depths of flavor, making this a truly captivating dram for the discerning whisky enthusiast.
