  1. MaroFF scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Whisky is very average for me, without that "claw".
    It is definitely suitable for drinking sauté and as every day for people who are not looking for something more than average.
    In my personal dictionary of concepts of the subject whisky, see the section "working whisky"

      medium, slightly peppery, honey-bitter, warming tip with hints of hops.

    Ballantine's uses several single malts in its blends, which have a strong impact on the bottlings. In order to show the individual components, the 3 most important ones have now been bottled as single malts. With its fruity and honey-sweet aroma, the Glenburgie Malt is at the heart of Ballantine's blends.
    Series No. 1

  3. stefan_PB scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Fruity and floral dram. I liked it.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Floral notes, oat aroma sounds, vegetable aromas and a little fruit, a trace of banana penetrates the nose, minimal nutmeg
    • Taste
      86 86
      The first impression is in the taste like a fruit cake, a lot of fruit and some cereal notes, later malt is added, a subtle sweetness is recognizable
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length, minimal sweetness in the finish, then turns into peppery, short citrus tones come through, there is a little oak over everything
