Tasting Notes

Taster: Michael Jackson

Nose: Very delicate. Fleeting fragrance of peat smoke. Hints of sweet orange, apricot, toasted nuts.


Palate: Light, but with a good malt background. Developing creamy butterscotch flavours, a hint of vanilla. Moderating the sweetness, a little lemon zest.


Finish: Interplay of fruitiness and older oak.


Comment: My personal taste is more robust, but I am in awe of the precision and refinement of the older Ballantine's.
