Whisky Reviews for Hankey Bannister Heritage Blend
10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.17 points
My first thought is forest. Dried leaves and limestone gravel. But then it gets a little more fruity. Light forest berries and chamomile. It smells more and more of chamomile tea. Pear compote and some canned peach. In return, dry wood and juniper berries.
Starts with a juicy woody taste. This is followed by bitter almonds and red currants. There's a taste in there that reminds me of apple red cabbage. With the second sip, an artificial plastic taste comes through. A mineral note and a dry spice taste are added. A hint of vanilla follows.
Medium. Bitter orange jam with a little vanilla. Followed by wood and a hint of sweet honey.
- This blended whisky is an interesting. It has sweet aroma with fruits and citrus notes, with a little bit cream and a very light peat. The palate starts with dried fruits sweetness, goes through the apple sourness to the peat, spicy and dry wood notes. The finish is a little bit longer than short and starts with peaty notes, goes with vanilla, wood and dried fruits notes.
This blended whisky is a good for thoughtful drinking at home. It’s necessary a time and attention to know this whisky well.
- N- Sceptical to think that this is any good after the lame 12YO Regency. But were pleasantly surprise by the expressive aroma. No sign of weak or overly pungent young liquid in here, good malty sphere with full and lasting earthy notes, plenty of drunken cherry, honey and pear, some caramel but not cloying. Reasonably well packed with well integrated aromas.P- Milky and firm with good width of earthiness. Honey, butterscotch with bitter dark chocolate, rounded with hint of sweet smokes.
F- Medium, lasting earthiness for for a finely spicy and peppery finish. Thick texture with more butterscotch arriving at the end. Another quality blend.

- a simple evening dram, without particularity but not unpleasant
spices, lemon, vanilla, a little woody, back cooked wine and malt!
spices still a little too present, then the combination lemon-orange-vanilla takes over, a little chocolate back
quite short, on the same "sensations"
N: Tomato-ey vanilla blended malt with a modern-styled oily-malty potency. All credit to Inver House for the 46% abv.
T: Edgy vanilla with a sweet-sour middle and a fair oily/fatty mouthfeel in the midst.
F: Slightly metallic and fruity dry tannic vanilla.
C: I’ve no problem with this blend but there are plenty of alternatives for the price [£19 Oct ‘17], including the odd single malt.Scores a D
- At it's full 46%, it's hard to get much from it, so I added about a teaspoon of water to about 50ml of whisky, gave it a gentle swirl, and let it sit for a few minutes. Definitely better with a bit of water. It may not have the body or peated influence of Teacher's, but it makes up for it with greater range and complexity.
Pear liqueur, honeycomb with a bit of dunnage earthiness, maple-sugar malt, orange peel and oil, fresh red and green apples with a touch of sweetly floral peat.
Honeyed malt with a touch of sweet floral peat, oak and baking spice, a touch of raisins.
Citrus and drying earthy tannins, fades to dark coffee and bitter chocolate
- Ralfy rated it on whisky review 420 with a high blend mark of 87 out of a 100!
- fresh blend, with green scents (apples, pear, grass), which is best appreciated at low t °, to regouter ... in summer!
a simple basic whiskey, which corresponds to the Scottish taste .... as we can imagine in France!
