Berry Brothers & Rudd Blue Hanger 11th Limited Release Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

SCOTLAND
$199.99 Bottle
  • ABV 45.6%

Another outstanding vatted malt from Berry Bros under their "Blue Hanger" label. This years is reportedly a combination of eight casks – four hogsheads, three butts and a puncheon, including both peated and unpeated Bunnahabhain. Awarded 'Blended Malt of the Year’ by Whisky Advocate Magazine in 2016.

Tasting note: Very light / pale gold. A semblance of Johnnie Walker Green to this; the same seamless integration of fruit, malt, menthol-freshness overlaid by a delicate coastal edge. The peat is more evident in the flavour profile, but kept in check by the vibrant, zesty malt. Orange spice cake? Spot on balance. Quite salivating stuff. Non-chill filtered and natural colour. 45.6% Alc./Vol. 125 bottles for Australia.

Other reviews... It’s the intensity of flavor that just grabbed me by the lapels and spun me round. It harbors intense tangelo juiciness; that unparalleled concentration of deep citrus skillfully mingled with dark vanilla, dried apricots, and gentle smoke. This goes the distance, delivering wave after delicious wave: peach juice, mandarin, pineapple cubes, and lemon zest. A firm, unctuous finish shows a little charred wood and dark sugar cloaked in fine smoke. Tongue pleasing and very special indeed. 92 points

Berry Brothers (a UK wine merchant established in 1698) have tributed the Blue Hanger series to one of their early customers, so called because of the shade of clothes he wore as a young man. Willam 'Blue' Hanger, aka 'Lord Coleraine', was a loyal regular of Berrys at the end of the 18th century, and reputedly one of the best dressed men of his day.
According to www.dramaticwhisky.me, "...the Blue Hanger releases originally came to the diplomatic market in 1932 but had faded into history, until being revived in 2003 by Doug McIvor, [Master of Cask Selection at Berry's]. The first release was a sublime marriage of Glenlivet and Glen Grant casks which produced just 723 bottles from a total of 4 hogsheads. Unsurprisingly, it sold out almost immediately upon its release as has been the fate of every subsequent release in the Blue Hanger range. Creation of a new addition only takes place when Doug feels they have secured the right casks in the best condition and can create a complimentary expression addition to the range".
