Ballantines 17 year old
I had the pleasure of tasting this Ballantines 17 year old as part of the Whisky Shop W Club Tasting Panel and i have to say it is a pleasant whisky.
Rated as the best Scotch Whisky in the 2013 version of Jim Murrays whisky bible this blended whisky is very nice, although i certainly dont think it's the best Scotch Whisky of the year.
Why not pick up a bottle from The Whisky Shop and try it for yourself.
Sweet lemongrass, fresh and airy. Has a touch of rich fruit cake and a citrus fruit peel. Underlying notes of wheat/cereal. The nose alone is utterly divine.
slight tingle on the tongue, more of the sweet lemongrass, malt biscuits and citrus notes.
sweet but with a light citrus tang.
