Ballantine’s Single Malt? The blended Scotch giant branches out

Ballantine’s Single Malt is officially a thing – the Chivas Brothers-owned blended Scotch (the second-largest in the the world by volume) is launching three 15 year old single malts under its own brand: Glenburgie, Miltonduff and Glentauchers.

Ballantine’s shifts more than 70 million bottles a year worldwide, second only to Diageo’s Johnnie Walker in the global Scotch whisky volume stakes. It’s big news that the brand is to release three Ballantine’s-branded Speyside single malts into the world – each with a fairly hefty age-statement at that.

Told you we’d be back soon (and we’re not done yet)…

Another week, and another 4 brand-spanking-new releases from That Boutique-y Whisky Company have hit the shelves in time for Christmas. Once again I’m left trying to justify the madness that’s escaped from my bonce and onto the labels of these fine drams…

So – let’s start with the most obvious of the 4. A Giant with a fondness for Jam Sandwiches stealing a giant hat from a dunnage warehouse whilst all unnecessary on Bourbon. That? That.

So – with the distillery tour over and done with, it was time to move onto the main event; that which we had all been invited along to see. The deconstruction of Ballantine’s 12 Year Old.

Before we get into all that though, I’d like everyone to take a second to behold the image below:

Okay. I’ll start here with an apology. This is possibly the most overdue blog post in the history of man (except my review of Dead Rabbit NYC, that’s more overdue). Things have happened since then, y’see. Things involving setting up new and exciting drinks distribution companies, developing a whole mess of new products, and the introduction of a mini sleep-terrorist into my house. These things have precluded me from doing what I should have done ages ago. The last one has also probably precluded me from spelling any words in this post correctly or being sure if my hands are, in fact, my hands. If you’re reading this, Ballantine’s-press-folk, you can have one free shot next time I see you, subject to the normal rules of course*.
