Last release of the "Playing cards" serie, Hanyu The Joker Multi Vintage is a rare and exceptional single malt from a distillery closed for years and whose reputation is still well established. Consisting of the last barrels stored at Chichibu distillery built by Ichiro Akuto, the grand-son of the founder of Hanyu, this whisky is above all an excellent blend of barrels from different backgrounds.
Hanyu The Joker Multi Vintage is indeed the result of the vatting of vintages 1985, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1991 and 2000 of the Hanyu distillery, aged in fourteen different types of casks (Bourbon, Cognac, Madeira, or also Puncheon, Butt, Hogshead and Chibidaru).
This diversity in the types of casks leads to complexity and aromatic richness, expressed through floral notes of broom, mimosa and honeysuckle, but also fruity notes of fig and citrus, highlighted by a hint of liquorice. Each types of barrels has left its mark in the aromatic signature of this atypical single malt.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.
