Ballantine's Single Malt Series

26th September 2017
Ballantine's launch Single Malt Series with Glenburgie 15 Year Old, Miltonduff 15 Year Old and Glentauchers 15 Year Old.

Ballantine's has launched a new Single Malt Series of whiskies which comprises of three of the main signature single malt whiskies found at the heart of the Ballantine's blend.

The three new Ballantine's single malts, Glenburgie 15 Year Old, Miltonduff 15 Year Old and Glentauchers 15 Year Old originate from distilleries that whisky drinkers rarely see any original distillery bottlings from as much of their output goes almost exclusively into the Ballantine's blend.

Interestingly, Chivas Brothers, owner of the Ballantine's blend as well as the Glenburgie, Miltonduff and Glentauchers distilleries have chosen to bottle the three new single malts under the Ballantine's label as a new Ballantine's Single Malt Series.

Ballantine's say that Glenburgie forms the heart of Ballantine’s whisky character and the new Ballantine's Glenburgie 15 year old Series No.1 delivers a concentrated fruitiness and honeyed sweetness. It is perfectly balanced, with aromas of soft red apples and pears, this whisky has a full and velvety texture and a long, round finish.

Miltonduff is the foundation of Ballantine's whisky character and the Ballantine's Miltonduff 15 year old Series No.2  brings warmth and power. Floral with a subtle hint of cinnamon spice, this whisky is extremely smooth with gentle liquorice flavours and a long, warm finish.

Glentauchers delivers the smooth and delicate lingering finish of Ballantine’s. The Ballantine's Glentauchers 15 year old Series No.3 has hints of delicate floral heather on the nose and soft berries and barley sugar sweets on the palate, this whisky has an incredibly long, luscious finish.

Peter Moore, Ballantine’s Global Brand Director commented: "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."

The new Ballantine's Single Malt Series, all bottled at 40% ABV, has been launched initially in Taiwan the 4th largest whisky market in the world by value and a popular market for Ballantine's whisky. It has also launched in Global Travel Retail priced at US $80/£60 per litre and will soon be rolled out in domestic markets including the UK, Australia, Canada, China, India, Japan, Korea and Switzerland at a RRP of US $56/£41 for a 70cl bottle.
