Dunhill Hyperion is a blended whisky from Scotland
that carries the Dunhill brand, which is better known for its tobacco
products. It does have a range of palatable blended whiskies though -
the Dunhill Scotch Master series featured in one of my baking adventures [sixthseal.com] (yes, I bake – in more ways than one ;)) is a premium blend.
The liner note from the bottle of Dunhill Hyperion goes “Hyperion,
from Alfred Dunhill, brings a new dimension of to the art of whisky
blending. It marries the finesse of great age with the fresh vitality
of youth to create a blend – Dunhill Hyperion”.
Dunhill Hyperion retails for about RM 300 in most drinking
establishments and is a pretty good whisky for the price range. It may
not be single malt, but it is good for general sculling. I drank most
of the bottle in one night and got pretty fucked up so I rate that as
“Good”. ;) It also comes with a cork, another minutiae that always
rates as “Good” as well in my book.
Behind the Scenes: The bottle keep label writing.
Dunhill Hyperion is a pretty good whisky…I have had a lot of
Dunhill blended whiskies and I actually prefer them to “classic” brands
like Mr. Daniel’s and Mr. Walker’s products. I have been drinking
heavily since I was arrested for drug possession.
P/S – I’m kidding about that last bit, April Fool’s
joke. I have never been arrested and thrown in jail and produced before
a court. Oh, and on another totally unrelated matter, please remind me
to go for confession during mass on Sunday.
