Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 241: Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost & Rare Port Ellen – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 241: Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost & Rare Port Ellen

Mark Dermul, Belgian whiskyblogger, tries another Johnnie Walker. May of 2018 saw the release of the outstanding Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost & Rare with Brora. That it would be followed by a Blue Label around that other trophy malt from Diageo – Port Ellen – should surprise no one. While the Brora edition already cost 250 EUR, this one is a little more expense. It was bottled at the unconventional 43.8% ABV. This time around the Ghost refers to Caledonian and Carsebridge (and Port Ellen, of course), while the Rare is represented by Mortlach, Dailuaine, Cragganmore, Blair Athol and Oban.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 240: Compass Box The Spaniard

Mark Dermul, Belgian whiskyblogger, tries a recent release by Compass Box. Enfant terrible John Glaser created this ‘The Story of the Spaniard’. Some 340 bottles were released for The Spaniard, a cocktail bar in New York. This is the general release for us regular mortals. It was composed with 40% Aberlour on sherry butt, 25% Teaninich on wine cask, Deanston on refill butt for 8% and refill hogshead for 7%, 5% Glen Elgin from recharred barrels and finally 15% Highland Blended malt from heavily toasted French oak. For the anoraks: that final 15% consists of 60% Clynelish, 20% Dailuaine and 20% Teaninich. You still with us?

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 239: Isle of Jura 30 Year Old

Mark Dermul, Belgian whiskyblogger, goes Jura! It has been way too long since he last tried a whisky from the Isle of Jura. So let him go for the big guns and try a 30 Year Old that listens to the name Camas an Staca, which means as much as Standing Stones. It refers to some of the ancient stones spread over the island. The whisky matured for 27 years in American oak and then got a finish for three years on Spanish Amoroso sherry casks.
