Føtex sælger fra mandag Ballantines 17-års, som ifølge Jim Murray er årets "Blended Whisky" og årets "Skotske Whisky" og han har tildelt den med ikke mindre end 97.5 Point.

Prisen er 349,-
En søgning på Google indikerer at den normalt sælges for op til 599,- kr herhjemme
Jeg fandt den dog også til 499,-

UK prisen ligger omkring 39 £

Her en anden - måske mere realistisk vurdering?
Ballantine's 17 yo (43%, OB, +/-2011) Colour: gold. Nose: much more ‘big' than the oldie, obviously, closer to grain, hay and grass at first nosing, then with quite some cedar wood, tobacco and tea with notes of dried flowers, orange zests and wood smoke in the background. There's also a little cough syrup, almond oil, chalk"¦ It's relatively complex. Mouth: relatively nervous, on bitter oranges and tea, with some peat, liquorice and pepper, cough syrup again, hints of kumquats... Very nice attack but it loses steam after that and becomes dry and rather cardboardy. Finish: rather short (not as short as the oldie's, mind you), dry, more on green tea and grass. Cocoa powder. Touches of peat in the aftertaste. Comments: it's a very good blend and I like it even a little better than earlier batches, but I feel it lacks body and, above all, length (and I'm doing this with a fresh palate and no I haven't eaten chilli con carne one hour ago). SGP:342 - 79 points.

Til prisen synes jeg absolut man får kvalitet for pengene, men de 97.5 point er højt sat. Er der mon lidt provokatør i Jim?
Nød min flaske, og har fortrudt jeg ikke købte to.
