Bank Note Scotch Whisky
I am wondering if anyone is familiar with Bank Note Scotch whisky, a 5-year old blend produced by the family that owns A.D. Rattray, an independent bottler of Scotch whiskies.
I bought a bottle last week as a blend for cocktails. I've not made anything with it yet but have had a couple of tastes. It's nice on it's own. Fairly rich with some sweet fruit and vanilla just like it promises. I also got a little peat in there as well which was nice. The grain whisky component is clean. Nice full aroma. Apparently, 40% of the blend is single malt which is much higher than most. I'm hoping the extra proof will give it a solid presence when mixing. A very good value at $18.99 and better than the big name blends I've had that are $3-$4 more.
