Hankey Bannister 40 Bottling Note
A premium 40 year old expression from Hankey Bannister. This is part of a limited release of 1,917 bottles. This was released to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the brand.
In fact, this was even named the World's Best Blended Scotch at the 2011 World Whiskies Awards!
The nose is quite light, yet rather punchy. There are notes of winter spice and black pepper with a touch of caramel. The palate is quite fresh and crisp with medium-body. There are notes of buttery biscuit and toffee fudge with cereal sweetness and a creamy mouthfeel. The finish is of good length with a fudge sweetness.
