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.
