Our Service is an online platform which provides Members with information (e.g. bottle facts, market-indices, market values and prices) on (mostly) whisky and allows Members to add information to the platform. We do not sell, nor does the Service provide any option to buy, any alcoholic products. When making a blended whiskey, a 'fingerprint malt' is the underlying single malt whisky used as its flavour base.We may sell, license, transfer, assign or in any other way dispose of the Service (including Members) to any third party without any notification to you, e.g. (but without limitation) in connection with any reorganization, restructuring, merger or sale, or other transfer of assets. Without prejudice to the section Liability below, the Service may be temporarily unavailable during maintenance, updates, etc. We shall make reasonable efforts to inform you of any unavailability due to maintenance or updates. Ballantine’s 17 is a blend of 40 malt and grain whiskies. Among them, some of the single malts that are at the heart of Ballantine’s: Glenburgie, Glentauchers and Miltonduff. The blend ages in American oak, ex-bourbon barrels.

The Ballantine's flavour is dependent on fingerprint malts [1] [2] from Miltonduff and Glenburgie, [3] blended with 50 single malts and four single grains. The brand has won many accolades and awards for its products. [4] Strong distribution and the popularity of Scotch whisky in the mid-1980s were key influencers in growth. Ballantine's was named the number one brand in Europe and the third largest in the world in 1986 with the oldest product Ballantine's Finest. In Korea, Ballantine's is the clear number one in the super-premium category with its ever-popular Ballantine's 17 in addition to 21 and 30. In 1988, the Company became part of the global beverage conglomerate Allied Domecq. Ballantine's is a brand of blended Scotch whisky produced by the Chivas Brothers subsidiary of Pernod Ricard in Dumbarton, Scotland.

Let’s leave behind all the fuss around the new Ballantine’s Light (which I’ll come to soon for The Whiskey Reviewer, and -#spoileralert- I didn’t like it), there’s more in Ballantine’s than their Finest or their 12 year old. In fact, there is a Ballantine’s 17 Year Old in their range that doesn’t often come up in conversations. B and B-: Good and above average. The best of the mass market whiskeys fit in this category, as do the bulk of the premium brands. A B- is three stars. No partnership, joint venture, agency, or employment relationship is created as a result of your use of the Service.

Ballantine’s 17 is a creamy and sweet blend with light hints of smoke. Lowering it to a 40% ABV makes it smoother, easier to drink. Keeping the 43% would have make it stronger and with more character (and I’ve probably would have liked it more). Even though, it goes smoothly and leaves a nice memory on the palate. One of those classic blends that easily transport you to another era.

But something has changed since Murray chose it, because the “new” Ballantine’s 17 year old isn’t like that. What used to be bottled at 43% ABV has been silently reduced to 40% ABV. Still, Murray has decided that the new version is the best blend in 2020. We’ll see. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid, the remainder of the Terms shall continue in full force and effect.

Ballantine’s stands as the second best-selling scotch blend, right after Johnnie Walker. And it is still there because they are using the recipe for Ballantine’s Finest that started all more than a century ago (or so brand says). They offers a range of age statement whiskies, that go from the a 12 year old to 21 years old. Between them sits this 17, which arouses some interest among Jim Murray’s fans, because he selected it in 2011 as his best whisky in the world.
