Amahagan Edition No. 2 Red Wine Wood Finish is the second whisky produced by Nagahama Distillery, and the second in the World Malts series made up of blends of new malts distilled on site in Japan with whiskies from malts imported from abroad.
Based on Blended Malt No. 1, this blended malt presents a glimpse of the future character of the young distillery's whiskies by highlighting the blending work of the Master Blender. This first series of whisky has been named Amahagan which represents the name of the Nagahama distillery read from right to left.
Finished in japanese red wine casks to showcase the influence of different cask types during aging, it expresses a full and smooth profile with oaky notes, fruity notes of grape and red fruit, and spicy notes.
Located on the site of Roman Beer Brewery on the shores of Lake Biwa, Nagahama is Japan's smallest distillery and is among Japan's emerging distilleries. Inaugurated in 2016, it is equipped with the smallest stills of the archipelago whose atypical shape is reminiscent of Arab constructions from which they derive their nickname "aranbics".
Product limited to 2 bottles per order.
