Whisky Reviews for Hankey Bannister 12-year-old

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.83 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 55 points Connoisseur

    N- Soft with muskiness, toasted cereal dressed with some caramel, muted for most time, with some orange seeping thru. Subdue and laid back.

    P- Quite rightly, probably made for those like Old-Fashioned. Orange peel, rock sugar and Anguostura. Crisp texture and light.

    F- Short-medium, is medium mainly due to the spirit heats that linger on that actually wish it can dissipate away quicker. Prickly, cloying musky wood and raw.

    Why bother to change the bottling with nice label but put in such under-par liquid?

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  3. Totoro scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A really good alternative to J.W. Black. Delicious and well-aged malt components (see also: Inver House brands), and the grains do not distract from the experience in the least. Decent body and finish, with an ever-so-slight wisp of smoke trailing the death. At twenty bucks: a steal.

  4. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    Caramel, sweet fruits, vanilla, cake, honey notes on nose.

    Sweet fruits, cake, furniture polish and honey notes on palate.

    Spices, vanilla, oak cask notes on short finish.

    N: Like a young single malt with some bitter notes.
    T: Chocolate malt
    F: A little more chocolate with a touch of smoke
    C: Rather decent blend displaying good form and demonstrating layered stages of sophistication.
