Ballantines 30 Year Old Cask Edition Blended Scotch Whisky (500ml) - Batch 2
This is a very different beast to the standard Ballantines 30. Taking a leaf out of Johnnie Walker's playbook, it offers the whisky at a higher strength of 50.1% in order to experience its full glory. Released in August 2017 as a Korean Travel Exclusive, Master Blender Sandy Hyslop describes the blend as "intense, with an additional layer of floral and herbal notes that perfectly balance the poached pear and iconic flavour of the original Ballantine’s 30 Year Old". It's one of the few spirits to be rated 5 stars at distiller.com, and given that Jim Murray ranks the 40% expressions as one of the world's greatest blends (96 points), the higher ABV and more considered cask selections should make this something very special indeed. This edition also features limited-edition packaging, further distinguishing it from the standard 30 Year Old. The striking design makes for a perfect gift. Extremely limited stocks.
