Just took another sip and it seems very smooth/silky. Feels like less than 40%. Soft, fresh flavor.

I'm surprised it is available in liter bottles.
I don't know how to describe it; I haven't had any in a decade.
SBlack is widely available in Poland <--- we are a vodka nation. If you saw the charts of 'alcohol consumption by type' you'd be very surprised with how low the bars standing for beer and wine are compared to western European nations.
As for the 1L bottle <--- maybe duty free market ?
Did it say Highlands on the label?
I think it is not a regular expression of Ballantine's. Apparently it's a sepcial 12yo blend for Xmas which is supposed to be spicy and ginger in taste :) No plans to check that! The bottle is sweet and the chances are it is better than whisky so I'll let it rest on my shelf :)
Sure! But no clue why I cannot rotate it when uploading. It looks nice and icy with a flash. I really like the design.
