Ballantines Christmas Reserve
I'm still getting through my backlog of samples and this Ballantines Christmas Reserve sample came from Adrian (@mynameisgone) from the Whisky Chronicle blog.
This is a very nice drinkable dram with hints of Christmas with a touch of cloves spices, orange peel and dried fruits and even some milk chocolate and orange fondant, a very nice easily approachable very drinkable dram.
This dram was available in Supermarkets and looks likely to be released on an annual basis
Thanks again to Adrian (@mynameisgone) for the sample
