This has been an old favorite of mine for years, but now that I have discovered the joys of single malts, this remains as the only blend that I would still buy. Granted, I have yet to get my hands on a bottle of highly rated Ballantine's 17, but I am happy with this one. The only problem is that there are better and cheaper single malts available, This one runs $65 US and I appreciate the blending job that they have done with this one.

Bourbon oak casks were obviously used in the aging, since I can taste those leather hints associated with fine bourbons. It is not too sweet, and has just barely enough smoke to let one know that they are drinking scotch. A very good blend among stiff competition from good single malts.

You might try Buchanan's 18 YO Special Reserve. It's about $55 BT here and is a very good blend. It makes me feel like I should be in a large leather chair in front of a smoldering fire in my mansion's library. Good stuff!

I tried Buchanan's 12 year old and hated it. The very weird spout for pouring also ticked me off immensely. I swore off Buchanan after that. I gave most of that bottle away.
