The newer, 46.5% version of a vatting of single malt from the Hanyu distillery built by Ichiro Akuto's grandfather with malt from the Chichibu distillery built nearby by Ichiro himself. A deliciously nutty dram.
Have wanted to get a taste of the legendary Hanyu and Chichibu distilleries from Japanese whisky rockstar Akuto-san, but prices for their ultra-limited single malts and single casks are crazy, despite being often just aged for 3-5 years. It's hard to separate the hype from the substance unless you taste it for yourself. I found it to have a pretty strong initial oaky impact on the tongue, but a wonderful complexity of flavors and strong finish. I don't have the nose to give more tasting notes, but suffice to say it was a unique experience and worth the wait and price.
I was pleasantly surprised. Definitely worth the wait.
