Ballantines Christmas Reserve, a special blend from Chivas Brothers’ Ballantine’s scotch whisky. This has been specially designed for use at Christmas. So expect a greater than normal sherry influence, with lots of fruit cake aromas and flavours. Keep some handy in your cabinet for a taste of Christmas all year round.

Colour: Rich and darkly fully golden.
Nose: Full of autumn fruit smells, sweet caramel, vanilla toffee, touches of smoke amongst malt, slight damp mossiness.
Palate: For something that’s 40% abv, and therefore assume chill-filtered. It has a pretty fair mouth coating to it, fairly rich and oily. It’s sweet and lusciously smooth, with honeyed wood noes coming through the maltiness really nicely. Well balanced, doesn’t feel too young, there’s no alcoholic nip to it.
Finish: Fruit, malt and honeycomb combine to give a warming hug on your chest. With just a wee puff of smoke somewhere in the mix; the flavours hang around for a fair while.
