ICHIRO'S MALT MWR
The return of a legendary whisky from Ichiro Akuto, formerly of Hanyu distillery and now founder and distiller at Chichibu.
This is a blend of malt whiskies from his extensive stocks, including whisky matured in mizunara – fragrant Japanese oak. Outstandingly rare, with only very limited amounts available to the whisky industry to use to make casks, mizunara is uniquely fragrant and adds a refined and almost incense-like air to this whisky.
Masataka Taketsuru (the father of Japanese whiskey) is the founder of the Nikka Company, where the Yoichi distillery is the flagship. Voted best single malt in the world twice, Yoichi belongs to a niche of distilleries that make and have made whiskey history: Ardbeg, Yamazaki, Lagavulin, Macallan and Laphroaig.
A mythical blend of older whiskeys all distilled in the legendary Yoichi distillery. A large portion of whiskey ages in ex-sherry casks. Delicately balanced between the peaty part of the whiskey and the more floral and fruity aromas.
