    Blows the god awfully overrated Johnnie Walker away and the price can't be beat. Inoffensive blended scotch that shoots mixes and sips perfectly. Whyte and Mackay and Te Bheag are superior blends but for the price you just can't beat the Ballantines Finest

    I'm no expert, but bought a bottle after it was recommended by the scotch expert in the LCBO. Find it to be extremely smooth, very drinkable. Great value compared to more expensive blends and single malts, I have tried. Will definitely be purchasing it again.

    A good blended whisky with a slightly over powering after taste.

    A very good blended. Treat it as a single malt, just a few drops of water. Nothing could be better for the price as a blended.

    Best whiskey i've ever had, it has it's own blend that i really like, 50/50 with cranberry juice and i'm in heaven. Other whiskeys have disgusting taste or no taste at all, but this one is just omg, amazing.

    The after-taste is overwhelming, and not in a positive fashion. If you enjoy single-malt, stay away from this blend. The after-taste is so pervasive even in cocktails. I gave it away... However, some might like this after-taste...

    Nice rich taste, pleasant none the less and with an after taste that can add up. Very good quality/price ratio! My third choice scotch.

    As cheap blends go, I prefer Whyte & Mackay, but this will do in an emergency, and indeed is pretty much all you can find behind the former iron curtain. Strictly for mixing, though.

    Was travelling in plane by Emirates. They were having only one whisky that was ballantines. I had it on rocks. It was sweet and smooth true to scotch whisky reputation. It has already occupied bars across the globe. Can become world's largest selling scotch whisky at this price point. Great whiskey indeed.

    Ballantines is better than jameson, bushmills and Bowmore on price point even though all r sweet and delicious to drink neat.

    Ballantines is best amongst Lagavulin, Aberlour, ancnoc, Ardbeg, belvenie, old pultney, Tomatin, Highland Park, hibiki and blue label.

    Was given this as a gift when hosting a dinner. I'm usually a Johnny Black man when it comes to blended Scotch. Not any more. For half the price, dare I say for more quality? To my tastes, yes! A couple cubes and a slash of water is how I enjoy this pleasant elixir.
