Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Ballantine's Hard Fired (70cl) to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Ballantine's Hard Fired Bottling Note

Ballantine's Hard Fired is an interesting expression from the immensely popular brand, as it was finished in the same casks it was initially matured in! "How does that work?!" we here you exclaim at your computer screen/smartphone/potential-future-internet-accessing-device. Well, it's initially aged in second-fill American oak barrels, then taken out of said barrels for no longer than a day (so the oak doesn't dry out). In that time, the barrels are hard-fired, giving them a heavy char. Once that's completed, the whisky is placed back in the barrel for a few more month before bottling.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Almost a burnt wholemeal toast aroma, just like your dad makes it. Slight floral flutter in the background, while tangy clementines, red apples and dried autumnal leaves all come to the fore gradually.

Palate: A good balance of flavour, vanilla is immediately obvious, but doesn't dominate. Baking spices, ginger and cinnamon rise confidently through bonfire smoke. Tart liquorice threatens to emerge but is eclipsed by fudge and buttery biscuit.

Finish: A long finish, with a silky, warm feel and an ashy quality.

Ballantine's Hard Fired (70cl) Reviews

Unusual and smooth.

A most excellent whisky. I’m a big fan of the charring. But it doesn’t overwhelm. That slight liquorice on the palate, and the long finish is superb.
