Produced by Nagahama distillery, Amahagan Edition N°5 Sherry Wood Finish is the fifth whisky of the World Malts series made of blends of new malts distilled on the spot in Japan with whiskies of malts imported from abroad. This first series of whisky was named Amahagan in homage to the name of the Nagahama distillery read from right to left.
Based on Blended Malt No. 1, it presents a glimpse of the future character of the young distillery's whiskies by highlighting the blending work of the Master Blender. In order to emphasize the influence of the different types of casks during aging, it was aged in bourbon casks and then refined in Andalusian wine casks, the famous sherry casks.
Amahagan Edition N°5 Sherry Wood Finish expresses a complex profile from the opening of the bottle with fruity notes of citrus, apple and ripe fruit, greedy notes of brown sugar. On the palate during tasting, gourmet aromas emerge with notes of strawberry jam, maple syrup and raisins. On the finish, it will leave behind spicy and vinous notes typical of sherry cask aged whiskies.
Housed in the 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 in the archipelago whose atypical shape is reminiscent of Arab constructions from which they derive their nickname "aranbics".
Product limited to 2 bottles per order.
