Ballantine’s 17 Year Old Scotch Whisky
The longer maturation of Ballantine’s 17 Year Old gives an extra depth of flavour and character to the blend. Characterised by a subtle sensation of smokiness its got a fruity and velvety texture coming from fresh fruits.
A great 17 year old blend from Ballantines. This was Jim Murray`s Scotch Blend of the Year for 2010! Really biscuity and thick.
Nose: Feinty. Smoke and a touch of mochaccino. There are some notes of leather and Madeira with a little chocolate.
Palate: Balanced. There are notes of cut herbs and a defined vegetal character. Fresh citrus and fudge. Touch of peat smoke.
Finish: Fruit, becomes dry.
