Ballantine's A brand that stands out as one of the best selling blended whiskeys in the world. I would like to draw attention to the year phrase in Ballantine's 12. This figure means that the youngest whiskeys in this blend have matured in oak barrels for 12 years.

Ballantine's 12 blend contains 50 whiskeys including Glenlivet, Glendronach, Scapa, Glentauchers, Miltonduff and Glenburgie.

Ballantine's 12 (Scottish Blend, abv)

Nose: A fresh, creamy and perfumed nose with vanilla, honey and oak in the foreground.

Palate: It presents a palate similar to the nose. Mild spice and cinnamon in addition to flavors of vanilla, dried apricots and honey. A delicious sweetness just right.

Finish: Quite short, dried apricots and honey.

Comment: Ballantine's 12 is a very easy-drinking blend with a light profile. Although it does not offer the delicious aromas it offers in the finish, nose and palate, it is a successful expression in terms of price / performance.
