|Spirits Type||Japanese Whisky|
|Spirits Style||Blended Japanese Whisky|
This very delicious and enigmatic blended Japanese whisky from one of Scotland's adept bottlers sells out around the world in minutes. We're lucky to have access to these special stocks but can't say much about the source as the bottlers are contractually prohibited from disclosing their source. The bottlers DO, however, imply that this whisky is distilled, aged and blended entirely in Japan and therefore represents a style of whisky that is all but extinct on our shelves. Whether or not this was distilled 100% in Japan is second to the fact that it's absolutely lovely. Big nose of malt and fruit, subtle peatiness, candied ginger and vibrant finish that is the hallmark of the great Japanese blends. It's sad to say, but this just might be the poor man's Hibiki 21, considering that product is now trading for upwards of $700. From the bottler: "Japanese whisky. Maybe you've heard of it. Maybe you've heard that it's pretty bloomin' marvellous. Maybe you're excited that we've only gone and bottled our first whisky from Japan! Our Japanese Blended Whisky #1 has been hotly anticipated by Boutique-y fans and Boutique-y team members alike, and we reckon it was well worth the wait."
