Distilled, matured and blended at the foot of the famous Mount Fuji, this blended whisky from Kirin is the new creation of Jota Tanaka, the Master Blender of the distillery, who wanted to pay homage to the terroir and the climate of the region through this blend.
This blend reveals a complex profile accompanied by a rich aromatic palette which on the nose expresses fruity notes of peach, apricot and orange liqueur. On the palate, the fruity notes are still present and are joined by greedy notes of honey, and pastry notes of pear pie and fruit cakes. The rather sweet finish ends with notes of white flowers.
In addition to being 100% Japanese, the new term of "single blended" was to name this whiskey, it is a blend of whiskeys from Mount Fuji distillery only. It is composed of several single malts distilled in traditional pot stills and 3 types of single grains (heavy, medium, light) distilled in 3 types of column stills (Doubler, Batch Kettle and Column). The distilled whiskies are put into American oak casks, the bourbon casks, to be matured in the distillery's cellar.

The distillery Fuji
The Mount Fuji Distillery, founded in 1972 by the Kirin group in the city of Gotemba, is located, as its name suggests, at the foot of the famous Mount Fuji, one of the most well-known emblem of Japan. While the distillery has historical knowledge in grain whiskies, it produces a wide variety of Japanese whiskies that all pay homage to the Fujisan.
The distillery is located at 610 meters above sea level, in a natural environment. The distillery has springs where the pure water has been filtered through layers of volcanic rocks for decades. At this altitude, the climate is rather cool with an average temperature of 13°C, and the high humidity throughout the year is ideal for maturing the whiskies.
Made of whiskies exclusively distilled, aged and bottled in Japan.
