Bottled exclusively for The Whisky Exchange, this Hanyu was distilled in the final year before the distillery closed. Bottled in 2016 and previewed at The Whisky Show to great acclaim, this is a chance to own a piece of Japanese whisky history.Tasting Notes (1)
- Dark Chocolate
Tasting Notes by Billy Abbott
Buttery and rich brown-sugar-sprinkled pastry, wrapped around a core of barley sugar sweetness and tropical fruit – candied papaya and sweet mango. Spicy notes of polished oak and varnish sit at the back, along with orange cream and a gentle milk chocolate.
Intense spice rolls across the palate – hot cinnamon, sharp clove and freshly sawn dark oak – followed by sweet liquorice, waxy wood polish and decadently dark chocolate with bitter cocoa and sweet fruit. Intense caramel, concentrated and bittersweet, provides contrast. As things calm, orange and lemon build, with buttery pastry, toffee and fudge – lemon tarts with a brûlée topping.
Tingling spice lingers, slowly fading to reveal baked apples, candied lemon and blackcurrant. The fruit fades through vanilla-tinged pastry to leave soft, sweet spice.
An intense dram that carefully balances oaky spice, buttery toffee notes and fresh fruit.
