Ballantine’s, A Scotch & World Whisky With Fierce Independence
The Ballantine’s family first blended Finest was in 1910, and it still stands as the oldest recipe in the current range. Nearly 200,000 bottles of Finest are sold around the world each day, proof that quality lasts the test of time.
The workhorse distilleries of Scotland – those unheralded stills that churn out fodder for the blends that the average punter knows well – periodically make their way to us in their unadulterated form. Today, I consider one of these from Finest, burnished by a bit of exotic cask maturation.
Officially, Ballantine’s made its debut to Ghana last night, March 21,2019, when it treated selected guest to its exclusive tasting on a rooftop garnished with music in Accra at the Suncity Heights, Nuage. Slightly sweet with a touch of vanilla perfect for mixing to start the night, the first ever Ballantine’s recipe started the night with a Whisky that’s stayed true to it’s original recipe since 1910.
The current range, comprised of a light gold colour is soft, elegant, heather honey aromas with a hint of spice and has a finish of fresh floral after-taste that creates a rounded glow.
After four rounds of different tasting with musical flings, Ballantines Whisky proves the taste gets better while the music play. True Music.
