    Very spirit driven, no character, bland. Taste is very generic and you have to really try to get anything from it because the young harsh spirit is way too overpowering to taste anything else. Probably is good for mixing because usually you can't taste whisky in cocktails anyway. Nose: Harsh spirit (overpowering), banana, acetone, sweet pear. Taste: Very young, fresh grass, green plums, sweet at first (for a millisecond), bitter after. Finish: Short, fresh cucumber(!), Green/sour plums, slight hints of vanilla. There are many better ones for the same price. Don't waste your money on this.

    Woohaaa! What’s the deal with this blend. My usual drink is single malts during the colder and darker months of the year. Love it! Now, summer, warm, all things go pear shaped. Want an easy drink, not to complicated. Ballantines showes up. Have a sip, oooh, nice. That’s what this is. A good blended. Not to mix with anything else, as someone in the earlier posts explained “with cranberry...” no! This is still a whiskey we’re talking about. Enjoy the taste, even though it’s quite short. But that’s the deal during easy summer drinking. Cheers!

    It's not the best but it's not the worst, its a whisky that goes for everyone and a whisky you can serve anyone visiting your home. One of the brands I always have a bottle of at home.

    Reasonable price for what it is. I've tried Johnny Walker but found this to my taste. The after taste doesn't linger too long, some call it thin, I'll call it simplicity. Those who reviewed negatively should bear in mind the affordable price range this offers. If you're comparing this to Glenfiddich 12 years, then you'll have yourself to blame for the disappointment. All said, it's worth your penny.

    Excellent smooth tasty whiskey for the price. It exceeds expectations and is in a class of its own. Exceeds taste and smoothness of much more expensive whiskeys.

    Not usually one for drinking blended Whisky. But always have a bottle for making Whisky Mac or hot toddy's etc. This is a great whisky for mixing, but for the price is very drinkable. I can only recommend it. Worthy of any drink cabinet.

    I am pleasantly surprised with the smooth delicate taste and nice finish. I didn’t expect much out of my first bottle but I’m already sold. This is by far the best blended scotch whiskey I’ve ever enjoyed.

    A very good beginner's choice. Easy to drink, smooth, etc... all these are at the expense of complexity, gets boring quickly. After Ballantine's you just naturally proceed to Johnnie Walker.

    Decent at it's best. Well balanced, smooth, somewhat oily. But very thin and gets boring very fast. Good whisky to start with but not a good one to experience something new with.
