Whisky Reviews for Ballantine's 30-year-old

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.00 points

  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Not a bad blend all together. It is quite enjoyable to drink and has some significant fine points to it.

    To be honest, the older releases have been much better, around the time and before it won the award with a rating of 92 by Jim.

    The never releases are not on par with their older bottles.
    • Nose
      76 76
      Sweet floral honey and cocoa notes. Further nosing after 30 mins, it opens up with white chocolate and the smell of lilies. Slow opening with a fast finish. The smell doesn't linger long,
    • Taste
      83 83
      Delicious oak with toffee and honey mix. Quite oily like melted butter. A bit of grapefruit, raisins, more toffee, some spicy ness from cinnamon and cloves.
    • Finish
      74 74
      Short to medium finish. A bit peppery. A bit on the weaker side, nothing much to rave about.
