Ballantine’s 17 Year Old | Price and Comparison with Similar Whiskeys

Ballantine’s 17 was named whiskey of the year in Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible in 2011. It is complex and rich in aromas, has a wonderful creaminess and combines honey-like nuances with aromas of vanilla. 

The bouquet of Ballantine’s 17 year old is wonderful too. It is characterized by notes of oak and vanilla. There is also a slight smokiness. 

In taste, this 17 year old whiskey has a honey-like sweetness and aromas of oak and spicy licorice. The whole palate is taken in by the special creaminess that this whiskey brings with it in its body. The finish is long lasting and characterized by vanilla and a hint of spice.

Ballantine’s whiskies are second only to Johnnie Walker in terms of blended whisky sales in the world.
