Product Description

Feastured in the 1001 whiskies you must try before you die book

Master Blender Stuart Harvey has pulled out all the stops to create this superb Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old. This well aged blend has been carefully selected from Spanish Sherry Oak Casks distilled in 1967 and 1970 from the Highlands to name a few. These Casks are then expertly blended with the finest Lowland grain. Bottled at Cask Strength and presented in unique decanter and presentation box. Each decanter comes individually numbered with a signed certificate of authenticity.

Nose: Blackcurrant cordial, plum jam, sherry soaked figs and dates, fruitcake, dried fruit, oak, mint and tobacco, chocolate covered raisins.

Palate: Fig jam on malty brown bread or maltloaf, black cherry compote, rich and dark sherry soaked fruity moutfeel. Touches of mint, caramelised nuts, tarte tatin with cinnamon, clove and marzipan.

Finish: Burnt nut butter, aromatic oak, tobacco, mint leaf, chesnuts, chocolate, sherry soaked dried fruit. Rich and juicy with caramelised dark fruit like figs or dates. Polished antique oak. A firm and long finish.

A real sense of some old age here, a rich and unctuous blend with some well balanced grain and malt elements.
