Walker Blue Brora & Rare Bottling Note
This is the first release in Johnnie Walker's Ghost & Rare series, which sees master blender Jim Beverage combine the exciting whiskies found in the esteemed Blue Label with seldom-seen stocks of whiskies from closed distilleries. For the inaugural expression, Jim Beverage has created a blend with a helping of single malt from the legendary Brora distillery at its core.
Nose: Earthy oak and petrichor, tempered by layers of thyme honey and maple syrup.
Palate: Rich walnut and hazelnut notes begin to take shape on the palate, joined by whiffs of peat smoke and roasted orchard fruit.
Finish: Vanilla pod and brown sugar, with just a hint of salted caramel appearing right at the end.
