Blue Hanger 10th Limited Release
Blue Hanger // Scotland
This whisky is named for William "Blue" Hanger, one of the most loyal 18th century customers (who was really into the color blue) of Berry Bros. & Rudd, the bottlers of the whisky. Blue Hanger was originally bottled in the 1930s for the diplomatic export market, then disappeared until 2003, now overseen by Berry Bros. spirits manager Doug McIvor. According to brand literature, it's a blend of "one butt of Bunnahabhain 1987, one hogshead of Bunna Moine 2007, Mortlach 1997 and Bunnahabhain 1988, two hogsheads of Westport 1996, and three butts of a 2007 blended malt comprised of Bunnahabhain, Glenallachie, Glenfarclas, Glengoyne and Tamdhu."
Blended MaltComprised of malted whisk(e)y from two or more distilleries; aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"This Scotch is creamy, viscous and sherried, with a strong nutty, fruity and toffee character. The coffee and musty pipe tobacco flavors in the finish almost make it impossible not to have the urge to don a tweed waistcoat while sipping this smooth and rich dram."
