The term "Meiyo" stands for "honor" and is one of the 7 virtues of the samurai. Samurai warriors are true to themselves and their decisions must reflect this. Nothing wrong to carry such morals into the modern age as well. And a perfect virtue for Meiyo Pure Malt 15YO Japanese Whisky to embody. This 2020 edition follows in the footsteps of Meiyo 17YO Single Grain Whisky, but, you know it, comes in Pure Malt form and is aged in ex-Bourbon casks.
