Hatozaki Blended Bottling Note
A blended whisky from the Kaikyo Distillery, the Hatozaki blend sees the marriage of both malt and grain whiskies, including whisky distilled in Japan and imported stocks. The whisky is named after the Hatozaki lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse in Japan. The liquid is aged in many different cask types, including sherry, bourbon and Mizunara oak, imparting a complex flavour profile.
Nose: Light, sweet malty aromas alongside more cereal notes and fragrant lemongrass. Fruity notes of nectarine and banana appear.
Palate: Grain sweetness, a touch of honey and barrel char, with more stone fruit and orange blossom.
Finish: An oily nuttiness appears on the finish alongside more cereal notes.
