1.            Ballantine’s 7 Bourbon Barrel Finish

The latest addition to the Ballantine’s range, Ballantine’s 7 Bourbon Barrel Finish is aged for seven years and finished in bourbon barrels, combining the depth of scotch with the sweet touch of bourbon to give you the best of both worlds. A whisky with all the character of Ballantine’s, but with an added touch of toffee apple and caramel thanks to the finish in bourbon barrels. A popular way to enjoy Ballantine’s 7 Bourbon Barrel Finish is in an Old Fashioned, with a couple of dashes of orange bitters to complement the sweet notes of the whisky. But, we also know it’s great neat or on the rocks, or with a premium cola for extra refreshment.
