A Hanyu from the distillery's final vintage: 2000. Shortly after producing this spirit, it closed and it is only thanks to former distillery manager Ichiro Akuto that these whiskies have seen the light of day. This is a masterpiece of wood management, combining layers of oak and woody spice with delicate fruitiness.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Toffee and toasted orange to start, with oat and raisin cookies, sawdust, pine resin, sweet cinnamon, polished oak and stewed sultanas developing.

    Palate: Rich and intense, but also surprisingly delicate. Big woody flavours provide a backbone, with oak, both sweet and sour, joined by lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove for a dose of spice. However, it doesn't get too spicy, with sharp fruit – green apples with their skin and citrus touches – providing some fruity balance, before wax wood polish develops to round things out. The flavour intensity grows as it sits on the palate, culminating in a focused apple and oak punch, right down the centre of the tongue.

    Finish: Quite hot, with polished wood, lightly sour oak and lingering buttery spice.
