Soft and light. Silky, oily peaty. A therapeutically medicinal relaxant.
Lemon-honey. Some late sweeetness. Late surge of gentle warmth.
Very gentle, but a precise clarity of flavours. Drink while listening to Vivaldi."
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Aromas of sugar cookies and cereal grains are clean and refreshing. Sweet and soft on the palate, flavors are of confectionary, apricots and baking spices. Light and airy in texture, it leaves the mouth feeling silky smooth. (Apr 2014)
Ballantine`s Finest is a complex, refined and elegant blended scotch whisky. It is regarded as the taste to satisfy a modern style. The original flavour, complexity and refinement comes from more than 50 single malt flavours. The unmistakable Ballantine`s flavour is dependent on these 50 single malts, 4 single grains and in particular the fingerprint malts from Miltonduff and Glenburgie. It is balanced because no one single component dominates.
|Ballantine`s Finest is the 10th largest spirit brand in the world. Distilled and crafted in Scotland for over a hundred years, the Ballantine`s family includes a brand to suit any consumer - young or old, male or female, casual or connoisseur. The heritage of Ballantineís Scotch Whisky can be traced back to the year 1827, when farmerís son George Ballantine set up a small grocery store in Edinburgh. From there he began to supply a select range of whiskies to a distinguished clientele.
