This unusually named whisky is derived from the wine & spirits merchants that created the blend in the West End of London, Mr. Hankey & Mr. Bannister. They were some of the first to take Scotch whisky out of Scotland and blend it elsewhere which they did over two hundred years ago. It is a blended whisky comprised of Lowland grain whiskies and Highland & Speyside Malt whiskies.

Tasting Notes

"The nose contains a rich and malty aroma, but proceeds on the palate more delicately. The whisky is very agreeable on the palate with a touch of almonds, vanilla, and sweet creamed corn. The wood and gingery spices come through on the finish ending pleasantly bitter."
