Golden Amber in the glass. A deep, balanced and elegant nose with hints of wood and vanilla. Full, creamy, luscious. The palate is complex, vibrant, with honeyed sweetness and hints of oak and peat smoke. A long, lightly smoky, vanilla and finally a hint of salt. Ballantine's 17 Year Old is the ultimate blend of precious whiskies that create a remarkably well rounded, complex Scotch whisky.
