Leading blended scotch Ballantine’s has moved into the single malts category with the launch of three new expressions.
The Glenburgie, Miltonduff and Glentauchers Single Malts are all aged 15 years old and provide a chance to experience the flavour of the three signature malts at the heart of the Ballantine’s blend.
Glenburgie forms the heart of Ballantine’s whisky character, delivering concentrated fruitiness and honeyed sweetness. With aromas of soft red apples and pears, it has a full and velvety texture and a long, round finish.
Miltonduff is the foundation of Ballantine’s whisky character, bringing warmth and power. Floral with a subtle hint of cinnamon spice, the whisky is extremely smooth with gentle liquorice flavours and a long, warm finish.
Glentauchers delivers the smooth and delicate lingering finish of Ballantine’s. With hints of delicate floral heather on the nose and soft berries and barley sugar sweets on the palate, it has a very long, luscious finish.
Ballantine’s global brand director Peter Moore said: “The single malts category is dynamic and continues to grow rapidly as more consumers become lovers of this iconic Scottish spirit.
“As a globally known brand, we are sure that consumers will have confidence in the quality and credibility of these new single malts as they are widely recognised as the signature malts that form the heart of Ballantine’s.
“Ballantine’s has never been one to pick the obvious route – we do things differently and create our own path to success. All of this is core to the Ballantine’s brand and our launch of three new single malts is yet another example of celebrating and staying true to our roots.”
The Ballantine’s Single Malt Series is bottled at 40% ABV.
