Ballantines 30 Year Old
Having been a fan of the DTC 35 year old blend I thought that I would try another aged blen to see if it stands up to the test. Things have been a bit quite on here of late but have tasted a few things lately so will get them added shortly.
Ballantines 30 Year Old Blend 43%
Nose: Rich, sweet vanilla with a touch of mint.
Taste: A touch of smoke, fairly light with a touch of citrus.
Finish: Fairly fresh, touch of smoke and light citrus notes and fairly dry.
A nice dram very well balanced just a little bit thin would have scored higher if it had a bit of ooommmppph!
