Hankey Bannister 12YO Details
Also from Inver House Branded Whisky
Whisky or Whiskey
Interesting fact… Hankey Bannister 12 Year Old Regency whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Hankey Bannister 12 Year Old Regency whiskey, instead of whisky.
Hankey Bannister 12YO
Hankey Bannister & Co. was established by Beaumont Hankey and Hugh Bannister in 1757 and their blended whiskies would, in time, become favourites of the likes of Sir Winston Churchill. The brand is now owned by Inver House, owners of distilleries such as Balblair and Knockdhu, whose malts are used to create this 12 year old blend. In 2012 Regency won a Silver Medal at the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) in 2012.
Nice one Winston
There is top note peat and smoke and some well balanced quality robust malts, but it does not quite have the sublime integration of JW Black. It is being discounted by my local supermarket and is excellent value. If you like JW Black you will love this one. Sir Winston knew his whiskys.
