"Superbly intrinsic, relying on deft fruit and vanilla notes as key; stunningly textured with subtle layers of honey, juicy grasses and refined slightly subdued, bourbon notes from the grain; flattens somewhat as the toffee evolves, one of the reasons I think I have loved the Ballantine's range over the years is because it is a blenders' blend. In other words, you get the feeling that they have made as much, and probably more, as possible from the stocks available and made complexity and balance the keystones to the whisky." - Jim Murray
Tasting Note: Sparkling red gold in colour with rich, honey-sweet aromas with hints of apple and floral. Smooth, rich liquorice and aromatic spice flavours with traces of heather and smoke. Long and mellow with hints of dry sherry.
