Culebra island, Puerto Rico

Nice touch in your mouth. Delicate to the nose. Great taste. A most with a Caribbean sunset.

Ballantines 12 yr old in Poland

Bad wodka, lots of sugar and burned caramel. That's what Ballantines 12 yr old whisky is overhere. Bought in an official alcohol store in Gorzów wlkp, Poland. Ca'nt believe that the distillery has something to do with this. 42 Euro's I payed for a worth of cheap 7 euro wodka.

Worth the journey

Enjoyable and easy everyday scotch. smoother than it's younger brother it has pleasant vanilla tones, honey, butterscotch and toffee aroma. Sweetness but balanced and medium aftertaste...savour the taste, it's well worth it

$42.73 ?

It's an OK scotch for $22, but not 42.73

one of the best blends

umm, so delicious

good and cheap

Excelent for the price. I cant drink Ballantines Finest but this one is a very smooth and flavoured. To me, Chivas 12, Old Parr, JW Double Black and this one are the best affordable blends.

Nice and Fresh!

This one is one of the best moderately priced blends on the market. It has a light and fresh taste like an Islay. It has a good bit of smoke. Great!

A wonderful blend

I normally lean towards smokier whiskies, but this is one of my very favourite blends anyway. Creamy, but not sickly sweet. Complex enough but still easy to sip. Very nice package!

Solid blend

Fruity, grassy, and a little spicy. Only vague hints of smoke. Not overly sweet, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Medium body, medium finish. All in all, an interesting blend on the "refreshing" side of Scotch whiskies. In my opinion, a lot better than the entry-level Ballantine's. Compared to JW Black (my personal reference blend), it's lighter, but not necessarily worse.
