17 year very old scotch whisky
Even though there has been a lot of controversy about Jim Murray's World Whisky of the year award in the 2011 Whisky Bible, it surely raised some interest for the Ballantine's 17 Years old. A blended whisky that is better than all those wonderful single malts?
Nose: Feinty. Smoke and a touch of mochaccino. There are some notes of leather and Madeira with a little chocolate.
Palate: Balanced. There are notes of cut herbs and a defined vegetal character. Fresh citrus and fudge. Touch of peat smoke.
Finish: Fruit, becomes dry.
Alcohol Vol 43%
