Another stunning bottle from Ichiro Akuto’s Ichirio’s Malt.
This is a vatting of whisky distilled in 1985 and 1986, fully matured in sherry casks before bottling at full strength 23 years later.
Since its stills were turned off in 2000, Hanyu has become one of Japan’s most sought after single malts. An economic recession at the turn of the millennium forced the distillery to shut its doors, and the remaining casks of its unblended whisky stock were purchased by Venture Whisky, a firm established by the Hanyu distillery founder’s grandson, Ichiro Akuto, in 2004. In 2005 he bottled his first single casks under the Ichiro’s Malt label.
