Blue Hanger 10th Edition Limited Release Blended Scotch Whisky

Description

91.2 Proof, 750 ml

"This whisky is named for William "Blue" Hanger, one of the most loyal 18th century customers (who was really into the color blue) of Berry Bros. & Rudd, the bottlers of the whisky. Blue Hanger was originally bottled in the 1930s for the diplomatic export market, then disappeared until 2003, now overseen by Berry Bros. spirits manager Doug McIvor. According to brand literature, it's a blend of "one butt of Bunnahabhain 1987, one hogshead of Bunna Moine 2007, Mortlach 1997 and Bunnahabhain 1988, two hogsheads of Westport 1996, and three butts of a 2007 blended malt comprised of Bunnahabhain, Glenallachie, Glenfarclas, Glengoyne and Tamdhu."" The Distiller

Limited to 4,398 bottles, this release of Blue Hanger is comprised of the following whiskies: one butt of Bunnahabhain 1987, one hogshead of Bunnahabhain 1988, one hogshead of Bunnahabhain Moine (peated) 2007, two hogsheads of Westport 1996 and one hogshead of Mortlach 1997. This edition also contains three butts of blended malts made from a batch Doug created with younger malts from the following distilleries: Bunnahabhain, Glenallachie, Glenfarclas, Glengoyne and Tamdhu.

"Lovely interplay of mild smoke and sweetness that evolves into a briny worn leather note... Very Enjoyable."
