Lol I thought you meant 'Ballantine's Finest' :P
Yesterday I had BenRiach 21 yo Authenticus, which I enjoyed. Then I had GlenGoyne Burnfoot which was drinkable but very grainy and didn't match BenRiach (no wonder <-- GG is a much younger whisky) ... and then I had a beer - LECH PILS. Knowing only a little about beer has advantages. I can go to the grocery store downstairs and enjoy almost any regular beer they sell. Knowing much more about whisky makes it almost impossible. LECH is a beer made by a local brewery in Poznan (which is among the 2 biggest ones in Poland). The brand is known in the entire country pils style is made only in my region. Being a local patriot I support it + I see the brewery from my window and very often I smell hops when they brew. Have a good day guys!
Yeah, it is different in every country. In the US it is totally different than in Europe. It can also be different between different types of packaging can vs bottle etc. (that may be my imagination as well though :) )
