Ballantine's 17 40%
Ballantine's 17 Year Old is a blend favoured by many, including Jim Murray, who awarded it Scotch Blend of the Year 2010, and who can blame him? It's vibrant, well balanced and properly packed with honey, apples and biscuits with a hint of smoke.
The ABV of this bottling sits at 40% ABV, which is slightly lower than the regular Ballantine's 17 Year Old, which is 43%.

A rather good whisky
Mainstream blend ? Absolutely not !
But the low ABV takes it down - 82 points in my book

After many those single malts I have tasted, this blended one "ordinary Ballantine's" has been systematically overlooked. Shame on me. Typical beginnner's mistake,always looking for something special. After years I realized that price and age are not always measures of quality. This one is one of the best whiskies I have ever tasted. It can easily compete with bottles worth £100 and more.

It's so smooth and bright. B17 draws your mouth back to the glass, over and over. With just half a teaspoon of water added, it open up with other subtle floral notes, less alcohol aftertaste. It's wonderful. I will buy many times again.

A lovely, perfect skilled blended whisky - smooth with tastes if fruit, hint of smoke, vanilla, and hidden depths only revelaled on the long, slightly spicy finish. Some real craftsmanship at work here. Superb.
