Ichiro's Malt Wine Wood Reserve Description
Another superb blended malt from Ichiro Akuto. This expression consists of malt whisky from Chichibu. The collection of Japanese whiskies are finished in red wine casks, , “WineWood”, and then blended with Scottish whisky (a great idea!) We always like to see distilleries from around the world look to Scotland to add character to their drams, and the additional flourish in red wine casks creates a great wee whisky. This one is bottled at 46% abv, and is free from chill filtration and artificial colouring.
Nose: Terry’s Chocolate Orange, liquorice, malted barley.
Palate: strawberry jam, Walnut Whip, dried spices.
Finish: sherried spices, chocolate, oaky tannins.
