What's in a name? Ballantines 30 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Ballantines 30 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Soft, age is apparent. Honey, oak and smoke.
Palate: Fuller with more oak, fresh floral tones with hints of sherried peels, fruitcake and salty butter.
Finish: Long, spicy.
I was a little dissapointed, a little fruity, almost whine wine type of drink, maybe a mix of vanilla and cherry, kind of bubble gum but is good, not great for a 30 years
