Hankey Bannister Heritage Bottling Note

Upon uncovering a rare 1920s bottle of Hankey Bannister, Inver House Master Distiller Stuart Harvey was tasked with recreating this piece of whisky history (much like the recent Mackinlay’s recreation but without the considerable excitement of an Ernest Shackleton Antarctic expedition!).

5,000 cases of this recreation have been produced using Hankey Bannister Original as a starting point. The recipe was then teaked with older and peated malts to match the flavour profile of the 1920s blend and create a fascinating insight into what Hankey Bannister was like some 90 odd years ago!

Hankey Bannister Heritage Blend Reviews

Interesting, not bad for a blend.

On the nose it's sweet, honey, melon, and some ripe grapes at the background. Very interesting smell of smoke, like from a campfire, meaty even. There's some pear and apple peel as well.

The palate is even more interesting: starts with bitter grain and high taste of campfire smoke, reminds me of smoked ham. . Then it's honey and the fruits that I mentioned before. The ending is quick, clean even, leaves a taste of honey and smoke in the taste.

After a little drop of water the nose is fruitier, and on the palate I taste raisins instead of grapes, but otherwise it's quite the same, but fresher. Ending is still quick, but lovely.
Very good choice, if you want to try something with friends. Not the best that I've tried, but still, very interesting. Quick end disappoints a little, but it's ok. Very good, and very interesting. 86/100

Easy drinking blend

A cut above the average blend. This came first in a blind blends tasting at Speyside whisky festival, 2 festivals in a row (they always enter the previous winner). Smooth easy drinking with a smokey edge. The sweetness helps balance the whisky & reminds me of an Old Putney due to this. Well worth the money & definitely better than most blends I have tried.

Okay but...

Yes, much more smokier than regular blend and that's good. Kudos for bottling at 46 %. However the sweetness is so overpowering that I can't recommend this one. A good try Inver House, but please reduce that sweetness.
