Bankhall Whisky releases Cigar Malt

Bankhall Whisky, a brand by Halewood Artisanal Spirits, has announced its newest blended malt whisky. 
Bankhall’s range is blended from whiskies from Halewood Artisanal Spirits’ three distilleries in England, Scotland, and Wales. Helming the project is master blender Jillian Boyd
Boyd joined Halewood in September 2023, having previously worked at whisky blending house Compass Box. Speaking on her appointment, at the time Boyd commented: “I am so excited to be joining the Halewood business. They have such an incredible line up of emerging whisky brands from all over the UK, and a commitment to producing new and innovative whiskies and blends.”
Billed as a “premium offering at an affordable price”, the existing Bankhall range featured its British Single Malt and British Malts. 
The latest addition, Cigar Malt, was created to pair with cigars. Blended from single malt whiskies and matured in new American oak casks, Bankhall says the new whisky will “cut through the dark earthiness of cigar smoke”.
The tasting notes provided by Bankhall highlight sweet and spice flavours of clove, cinnamon, caramel, and vanilla.
