Description

A 2017 second special release from Johnnie Walker, once again, with the idea of blending ghost distilleries (ie closed) with other rare spirits.  So Port Ellen is named (for a closed distilleries how many releases have there been?) but the other two "ghost whiskies" are Caledonian and Carsebridge.  The later two were grain distilleries.

And then the rares: Mortlach, Dailuaine, Cragganmore, Blair Athol and Oban.  So a slightly smoky edge perhaps?

From Forbes, "And I will say this: If you’re expecting a colossal dose of peat because of the Port Ellen name, I cannot reiterate enough that that’s not what you’re going to get. The whisky is fresh, balanced, and malty. But it is not screaming of Islay. Like any good ghost, it murmurs."
