This bottling is the result of a vatting of Yoichi and Miyagikyo single malts with a whisky made from 100% malted barley distilled in coffee stills.
Colour: Old gold with golden highlights.
Nose: Lively and mineral. Animal (leather and smoked meat) and lightly smoky (tobacco and ash). Develops along a theme of fresh grass and ripe fruit (apple).
Palate: Rich and delicious. 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).
Finish: Soft and liquoricy, with distinct notes of sandalwood and spices (clove). Concentrated.
