Ballantine’s gold

Blended — Scotland

Tasted January 8, 2021
3.5 out of 5 stars
Quite a strong flavour compared to finest or the standard 12 year. Spice is high, smoke at the mid level. Like the 12 it tastes like it was finished in a Sherry cask, there’s a cream and vanilla scent that is lost slightly on the tongue. Unlike the 12yr standard there isn’t the underlying dryness of oak
