Blue Hanger 9th Release Bottling Note

This is the ninth release of Blue Hanger, an exceptional series of blended malt whiskies from Berry Brothers & Rudd. It was named after William Hanger, who got the nickname Blue Hanger because he wore blue quite a lot. That's also how my friend got the nickname Terry Fancy Shoes.

The ninth release pulls back the reins of the sherry cask whisky in the blend, choosing to add some peated whisky instead, which gives this expression a brilliant little twist on the nose and palate.

User Reviews of the Blue Hanger - 9th Release (Berry Bros. & Rudd)

I'm a Believer

A wonderful whiskey, smooth and full of flavor. So good I have to hide it from myself! I always thought single malts were axiomatically superior--not so!

A wedding whiskey? I had to try it. Mild nose. For such a mild nose, the first taste Is bigger than expected. Warm mouth feel with light peat. I don't taste the soapy, medicinal flavor described in other reviews. This blend is pleasant and well balanced. Flavor mellows with each sip.

Exceptional! Perfect!

I have tried and evaluated over 100 whiskies (blends and single malts) over the past few years. I ordered two bottles of this for my wedding sight unseen having loved the 5th and 6th editions. Wow! Not only is this the best Blue Hanger yet, this is the best whisky I have tasted possibly ever. It has a complexity that is satisfying and engaging, not distracting. It is smooth but bursting with delicate flavors. It is familiar yet also exciting. The slight peat flavor is excellent, not unlike Johnny Walker Green, but in this it is balanced by gentle floral, grassy notes. Yes, it does have an ever so slight hint of a soapy, medicinal taste, but only in the best sense - like a piece of Choward’s Violet hard candy. You can’t go wrong, especially if you are buying whisky for something like a wedding where people who don’t typically drink scotch may be partaking, but also where you want give the regular scotch drinkers something they’ll be able to love.

Not for me

Too sharp and too medicinal. A hint of TCP spoiled it for me but a blend will always have competing flavours in there.

Amazing! Lightly peated. Very smooth. Really complex flavour.
