HONEYED, WELL BALANCED AND CREAMY.
Rich, smooth and creamy blend comparing to the finest, which is more floral and delicate. Ballantine’s 12 is characterized by more honey, toffee and creamy notes compared to Ballantine’s 17 YO.
Nose: Honey sweetness with a complex balance of oak and vanilla aromas.
Taste: Complex honey and floral flavours with a creamy oak sweetness in perfect balance. Rather creamy. Mochaccino and buttery pastry, spice.
Character: Honeyed, balanced and creamy.
Colour: Bright honey gold.
Finish: Gentle, spice and fruitcake. Refreshing, long and sweet.
The Favourite: When asking Sandy Hyslop about his favourite Ballantine’s blend he would pick Ballantine’s 12YO.
In 1883, George Ballantine could boast 20,000 gallons of blended stock in bond, so he began to allow malts to age. Over the years a more discerning flavour was born - one that would make an outstanding mixer.
