In addition to the closed distilleries, whiskies from Glen Elgin, Inchgower, Glenlossie, Cameronbridge, and Glenkinchie are also included. Available globally as of October 2019.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
"The stories behind each shuttered Scottish distilleries often leave us wondering "what if", and this blend from Johnnie Walker does fine work in keeping the Glenury Royal flame coursing. The nose is the star here with tropical fruits and rustic bread in the lead with notes of pollen and smoke in the background. The palate is a delightful and classy mix of creamy malt, banana and spiced honey. "
