Jim Murray's Whisky Bible
Insider knowledge: Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Warm and sweet. Spiced chocolate mixed with mulled raisin hidden beneath.
Palate: Completely enrapturing, it has a buttery soft glow that sparks with spicy moments.
Finish: A twinkle of fruit lasts. And lasts. And lasts some more.
