Let's see how it goes...
Hankey Bannister Original, 43% ABV
Blended Scotch whisky
Price range, 750 mL: $17-22
Nose: Very sweet. A bit like a sugar cookie. Earthier notes developing after a while.
Palate: Sweet but a bit rough. Just caramel through and through.
Finish: Caramel and some light wood. Leaves a woody taste after a minute or so.
Rating (of 100): 64. This is basically a bottle of alcoholic caramel flavoring. Not something I would purchase again, despite the low price tag. Kudos for bottling it at 43%, though - that's not too typical for an entry-level blend. Maybe they needed to add some alcohol to try to mask the caramel...
