Ballantines 17 Year Old Scotch Whisky was named Whisky of the Year in 2011 by Jim Murray. The world's most respected whisky expert in his latest edition of his Whisky Bible. Ballantines 17 Year Old trancends the prejudice that sometimes ranks single malts higher than blends. This is quite a majestic whisky that shows a deep and golden colour.
The longer maturation of Ballantine's 17YO gives an extra depth of flavour and character to the blend. Characterized by a subtle sensation of smokiness that differentiate it from Ballantine's 12. It's fruitiness and velvety texture coming from fresh fruits differs from Ballantine's 21 dry fruits influence.
