Description

A no age statement single malt distilled at Hokkaido  in northern Japan. This one  has been finished in Bourbon Casks, which adds to their experimental range and brings to the table a subtle marriage between the rich peat smoke, melon and milky chocolate notes the distillery is known for and the creamy caramel and vanilla sweetness from the cask.

This Whisky was bottled in 2018.  As it seems to go with most Japanese editions, it sold out almost instantly and is now in big demand on the market.

Very sought after dram and very hard to get your hands on!
