Insider knowledge: Ballantine's 21 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Ballantine's 21 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Subtle. Stone fruit. Nut oils, marmalade and gentle wood smoke. T
Palate: Soft, barley and honey, Seville marmalade.
Finish: Gentle, but has good staying power.
Heard good stuff about this and it was all true. I know a person who works in the bottling plant in dumbarton, gets me it for £30 but if push came to shove I'd pay full whack

Very smooth, warming to heart and mind. Like the sun coming up on a cold day after a good rain that night. The aroma before your sip gets your mouth watering. The linger flavors on your tongue are good for 30 seconds or more. You'll want to keep a bottle tucked away for special guests.
