This version is the result of a vatting of Yoichi and Miyagikyo single malts with a whisky made with 100% malted barley, and distilled in coffey stills.
Old gold in colour with golden highlights.
A lively nose with animal (leather and smoked meat) and lightly smoky (tobacco and ashy). Develops along a theme of fresh grass and ripe fruit (apple).
A rich and delicious palate. After a burst of rich, liqueur-like softness which is at odds with the liveliness of the nose, ripe fruit (sultanas) notes develop alongside an increasing oiliness (sunflower oil).
A soft and liquoricey finish, with distinct notes of precious wood and spices (clove).
