Whisky Review: Blue Hanger 9th Limited Release

Style: Fruity and Vanilla

Sailing vanilla sticks and heather honey, gentle tropical fruits aroma on the nose. Green melon underpainting with very little trace of spice giving off mild sparkles. Smooth texture, a touch of dryness within the delicate sweetness.

The rhythm has stepped up a good notch on the palate. Robust tropical fruits unfolding beautifully at a decent pace. Pretty spice beaming positively as hints of peat smoke drifts in. Vanilla in custard form and honeyed fruit tarts lining up nicely. Finishes off with a brush of chocolate oak.

Tiny bits of lemon meringue air-dried with candle smoke. Oak and dusty spice hangs on for a short while. 

Juicy, delightful expression which carried more weight than the spice has suggested. Smooth vanilla and fruits striking a beautiful balance with instances of dryness and peat smoke. My first BBR Blue Hanger and it is surprisingly well done, too good for a warm up dram.
