Hankey Bannister 40

Country: Scotland


Type: Blended Scotch

Bottler: Inver House

ABV: 43.3%

Score: 90 Points

The nose has notes of oak, vanilla, nutmeg, a hint of smoke, and dark chocolate. The taste is spicy, thick, and peppery with honey and molasses undertones and hints of brandy-soaked orange peel. The finish is long and slightly tart with touches of brandy and brown sugar. Complex and interesting.
