Aged for 18 years, this whisky has earned 5 Double Gold Medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and thrice been named "Best Other Whisky."
Deep, mature in nature, and very complex. Notes of polished leather, maple syrup, and dark pit fruit, with suggestions of tobacco smoke, wood shavings, and unsweetened chocolate. References to fine old bourbon and ultra-matured pot-still rum provide intrigue. Proof that Japan produces some outstanding, distinctive whiskies. Nicely done
