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 (1)
Tasting notes by Billy A
Toffee and toasted orange to start, with oat and raisin cookies, sawdust, pine resin, sweet cinnamon, polished oak and stewed sultanas developing.
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.
Quite hot, with polished wood, lightly sour oak and lingering buttery spice.
