A Quick Dram: Ballantine’s 17 yo

Ballantine’s 17 yo
43% ABV
£39.99 from Here

Colour: Honey

Nose: Rich Christmas cake icing, honey, spice, plum jam sweetness, juicy red apple, sweet oak and a touch of marzipan.

Palate: Elegantly bitter and spicy on the entry, ever so slightly smoky and medicinal, oak sweetness punching through.

Finish: Super dark chocolate, iodine, chilli peppers. Medium long and balanced, wraps this whisky up beautifully.

Overall: I am guilty of rarely drinking blends at all. But this whisky has a potential to change it with the unexpected complexity and charisma it offers at a bargain price. I know what my father will be getting for Christmas…
