Whisky Reviews for Blue Hanger 5th Limited Release

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.36 points

  1. vredensever scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Aroma : sweet juicy fruit, honey, candy with nuts, gingerbread, shortbread, spices and herbs. The taste is soft and even: light honey, gingerbread, bread, malt, fruit compote, spices, small grassy bitterness. Aftertaste of medium duration: honey, bread and malt, gingerbread and biscuits, spices, a little oak. Conclusion . A good, well-built pattern. Unobtrusive, cautious. Probably, would come for a leisurely friendly meeting. Rating: 87 (n22t21f22b22).

    Malty sweetness. Evoque a Japanese by its rapid implementation, readability. A little caramel. Honeysuckle (a first for me). Later, milk chocolate, dried fruits, nuts especially. On the palate, intense, without aggression but with some spices a bit too bitter for my taste that unbalance a little bit all. With a little water, the nose becomes warm and woody, the mouth is adorned with sweetness and dried fruits. The nose is beautiful but I was a little disappointed in the mouth.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

    • Nose
      Rich mixture of honey, ripe fruit, walnuts and spices: it smells like sherry !.
    • Taste
      Rich, powerful, round and complex blend of aged malts. Spices, ripe fruits, oleaginous (nuts ...). The sherry finish seems obvious but without too much "impasto".
    • Finish
      Fine and elegant finish with good length and a nice roundness.

    Blue Hanger is named after William Hanger, the 3rd Lord Coleraine, a loyal customer of Berry Bros. & Rudd during the late 18th century. He was renowned for the striking blue clothes he wore and gained the soubriquet, â€
