Ballantines 23 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Another beautifully presented and well-aged Ballantines that really hits the mark taste wise too. The Master Blender favours a high proportion of whiskies aged in first-fill American oak casks. Great review from Whisky Advocate below.
Other reviews... An exceptional blend from first-fill American oak casks, which has Glenburgie whisky at its heart. Dry oak, Rolos, cantaloupe, dried mango strips, papaya, and cinnamon on the nose. Rewarding and weighty, with caramel, orange, raspberry, layers of spice, and dark toffee, with a concentrated fruitiness and a smear of spices leading to a warm, dark, lengthy finish. 40% Alc./Vol. (Travel Retail exclusive)
