Insider knowledge: Hankey Bannister 12 Year Old Regency whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Hankey Bannister 12 Year Old Regency whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
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.
