World Whisky of the Year 2011. 
 
Ballantine's is one of the most well-known Blended Scotch Whisky brands in the World. It was established by George Ballatine in 1827 in Edinburgh. It started out as a small grocery store, and slowly became the World's second highest selling Scotch Whisky, right after Johnny Walker. The brand’s belief in ‘Staying True’ has ensured that the Whisky’s quality has never wavered and that more people across the World enjoy it today than ever before.
 
This is simply one of the best blended Scotch Whiskies in the World! In 2011 it swept aside all single malt rivals to take the prestigious Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible Award. That's saying a lot. The longer maturation gives it extra depth of flavor, from subtle smokiness to its fruitiness and velvety texture.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
