Just like Single Grain Blender's Choice recently rewarded at the World Whiskies Awards 2015, Kirin Single Malt Blender's Choice is a limited edition of a subtle blend of several single malts aged in Bourbon barrels and carefully selected for their unique taste qualities by Jota Tanaka, Chief Blender at Fuji Gotemba Distillery.
This special 2015 batch proudly expresses delicious aromas of acacia honey, maple syrup and ripe quince, finely highlighted by scents of incense and a discreet smoky note coming from the use of some slightly peated single malts in the final blending. Kirin Single Malt Blender's Choice 2015 was bottled at 46% without chill filtration in order to bring depth and smoothness to its texture, but also to reveal the complexity of its flavors profile.
Founded in 1973 at the foot of Mount Fuji, Fuji Gotemba distillery is distilling malts and grains whiskies into column or traditional pot stills, creating a wide variety of types of whisky vatted with expertise as well, wich both Blender's Choice are a perfect illustration.

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.
