The fourth in a special release from Johnnie Walker & Diageo, Ghost & Rare Pittyvaich edition features the addition of spirit from another dead distillery - Pittyvaich. Dead distilleries are producers that once were in operation and have since shuttered operations, no longer producing spirit. The legacy of Pittyvaich is short lived, and the operation ceased production in 1993. The other components besides Pittyvaich include Port Dundas, Carsebridge, Cragganmore, Auchroisk, Strathmill, Mannochmore and Royal Lognagar.
Sweet peaches, cream, honey, toffee and a tidbit of tobacco. Interesting, complex....surprisingly awesome!
Medium palate, no heat, unsurprising given the proof. Lovely and complex, tons of vanilla bean, creamy toffee, some nougat, cinnamon spice, apple butter and rich tobacco.
Long finish, packed with maple, brown sugar, rich malt, tobacco and honey.
Wow! An out of the blue stunner from Johnnie Walker, brimming with great complexity on the palate and a long decadent finish.
