Limited Release. One bottle per customer please.
The 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, “Blue Hanger”. For each release their spirits buyer, Doug McIvor, noses and tastes his way through several samples to identify exceptional casks before working with them to produce the best possible results in terms of aroma, flavor and finish. For the Blue Hanger series there has always been a strong influence from Sherry casks but they make an conscious effort to offer balance and complexity from other casks as well. While every release is unique, there is continuity in overall style to retain the rich, smooth, fruity complexity that makes this Whisky stand out from the crowd.
This exceptional and very limited Blended Malt offers impeccable clean, bewitching aromas of orange peel, vanilla, peat-smoke with wafts of sherry. The palate is luscious and complex. The age and quality of the malt asserts itself throughout. The peaty, earthy note on the front palate is enriched by fruity Speyside sweetness in the middle, leading to the fruity, smoky finale.
