A rare gem from distilleries long gone.

Everyone knows the ambulating gentleman from Kilmarnock, Scotland, who refused to spell his name the usual way. Now Johnnie Walker created a special release made of rare Whiskies from so-called "ghost" distilleries that were closed a long time ago.

Jim Beveridge, Walker's Master Distiller, took eight precious Scotch Whiskies, including three from distilleries that are now silent. The exquisite blend of the Magnificent Eight is smooth, sweet and rich. The advantage of owning such a vast library of the rarest Spirits is a great power, but also a great responsibility. Your Spidey senses will notice the richness of character, flavor and age that are not to be found anywhere else.

This priceless Scotch is built around single malt Whisky from Brora (pretty epic right?), which was shut down 35 years ago. Uniquely full-bodied malts and grains carefully picked for this exclusive blend bring light peatiness and subtle sweetness in a recherché bottle. If you love exclusive and aristocratic releases, then this bottle is for you. Choose your fellow drinkers wisely and make them call you Ritz for a day.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
