You will like to know that…

The master blenders of the distillery are responsible for the success of George Ballantine and Son whiskies: there were only 5 in the history of the distillery, and they are the only ones who know and pass on the recipe of this blended scotch Whisky, which consists of over 40 different cereals and malts.

With its rich, soft fragrance and taste reminiscent of honey, vanilla and milk chocolate, this whisky is unique.

The bottle bears the flag of the company, reminiscent of the Scottish flag and the 4 elements needed to make the whisky: Earth, fire, water and air.

Also unique is the shape of the bottle, simply rectangular to be easily hidden in cases where alcohol dealers were active at the time of the ban.

Description of Ballantine's

Ballantine's

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: Ballantine's has a light but warm golden hue.
  • Aroma: Heather, honey, and just a touch of spice.
  • Taste: Complex, soft, and slightly sweet, with a hint of vanilla, along with notes of milk chocolate and red toffee apple. A fresh, floral, and well-rounded warm finish leads you to take the next sip.

PRODUCER: Ballantine's is part of Pernod Ricard, within its prestigious Chivas Brothers whisky portfolio. The Ballantine's brand has come a long way, from its creation in Edinburgh by farmer's-son-turned-shopkeeper George Ballantine in 1827, to being globally-renowned and the best-selling whisky in Europe.

COUNTRY: Scotland

PRODUCTION DETAILS: Ballantine's has remained faithful to its original recipe, the ‘Finest', since 1910; as smooth and easy-drinking a blended whisky today as it ever was. That recipe brings together no less than fifty single malts, mostly from Miltonduff and Glenburgie, with four single grain whiskies. Ballantine's isn't known as ‘the spirit of the gods' for nothing. You can't go wrong with a classic ‘Finest and Cola', but why not branch out and try Ballantine's in a Maple Fashioned, a gorgeous Canadian twist on an Old Fashioned, using Ballantine's , a teaspoon of maple syrup, and an orange twist, on the rocks.

Así es, Ballantine's es el whisky "estándar" de mis cubatas de whisky-cola en vaso de tubo y con hielo de bolsa de gasolinera. Y no suele faltar en las fiestas con amiguetes.
En cualquier caso, reconozco que la frase de "cuanto mejor sea el whisky, mejor el combinado" es bastante acertada... y de vez en cuando me permito el lujo de mezclar la Coca-cola con Cardhú (digueu-me agossarat). :)

1.5 /5

Opinión de elwhsikydelmes:
Color: Dorado claro y brillante.
Aroma: La entrada es un golpe de colonia barata, muy agresivo que hace desear estar lo más alejado posible de la bebida, sin embargo, si se deja pasar cierto tiempo, ese tono desaparece y muestra una faz más reconocible con notas dulces de miel y florales. Son suaves y van desapareciendo también, pero son apreciables.
Paladar: Al haber dejado pasar un tiempo para poder apreciar la nariz, la entrada en boca no genera el mismo rechazo. El sabor es fuerte y seco, con notas de madera de roble y vainilla. Con el tiempo, aparece el chocolate pero no se torna dulce sino mantiene un aire amargo.
Final: Medio largo, bastante floral y agradable.

4 /5

- Ballantine's Finest is a complex, refined and elegant blended scotch whisky.
- It is regarded as the taste to satisfy a modern style. The original flavour, complexity and refinement comes from more than 50 single malt flavours. The unmistakable Ballantine's flavour is dependent on these 50 single malts, 4 single grains and in particular the fingerprint malts from Miltonduff and Glenburgie.
- It is balanced because no one single component dominates.
- Colour: A light gold
- Nose: Deep with hints of spice
- Body: Rounded
- Taste: Well balanced with tones of chocolate, apple and vanilla followed by a gently floral finish
- Finish: Sophisticated after-taste gives a fresh floral glow.
