A 10 years old blended malt from the Shinobu, spent most of its days in bourbon and sherry casks before it was transferred to Japanese Mizanura oak for a finish, imparting earthy, woody notes to the whisky. A suitably well-rounded expression.
Nose: Oaky vanilla, sandalwood and lemon blossom alongside zesty peels.
Palate: Earthy oak and milky coffee, with orange chocolate and vanilla pod.
Finish: A full, oaky finish with hints of stone fruit.
