In 1827 George Ballantine set up a grocers shop in Cowgate, Edinburgh and began supplying whiskies to his customers. In 1865, when he opened a larger store in Glasgow, he began experimenting with making his own blends and the Ballantine's brand was born. The brand's light gold colour and unmistakable taste come from a complex mix of carefully selected malt and grain whiskies all aged for at least three years, and many for much longer. 
 Size: 1 Litre ABV: 40% Origin: Scotland  

 

Tasting Notes

Color: A slightly lighter shade of medium-pale gold.

On the nose: Abundant wildflowers, lime juice, lime peel, key lime pie, limes everywhere! Freshly-mowed Kentucky bluegrass lawn, more Daiquiri Ice, and the unsalted meaty-nuttiness of cashews. Overall, the aromas are wispy rather than forceful.

In the mouth: Pale and weak in comparison. There’s a watered-down hint of the nuttiness of the 1970’s dram, but otherwise this disappears without a trace. Almost no entrance, no midpalate, no finish.
