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.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
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.
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.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
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.
