Blended Whisky of the Month – February 2012

It’s been a few months since we last published a Blend of the Month but we think this dram has been well worth the wait!!

Ballantines 17 Year Old (70cl, 43%)

This 17 Year Old Blended Whisky from Ballantine’s was chosen by Jim Murray as the “Scotch Blend of The Year for 2010”.


First blended in the 1930’s, Ballantine’s 17 Year Old is a prestigious whisky that has remained unchanged for more than 75 years.


Tasting Notes:

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.

Jim has tasted this fine dram on a few occasions and is looking forward to having an official Whisky Boys tasting on this in the not too distant future, keep reading our blogs for more information on this dram.
