Located in the heart of the Roman Beer brewery set on the shores of Lake Biwa and inaugurated in 2016, Nagahama the smallest craft distillery in Japan unveils its very first single malt after six years of production.
Nagahama Single Malt The First Batch is a whisky with an elegant and malty profile that hints at the typical characteristics that will be expressed through future editions of the distillery.
Its very expressive nose is marked by numerous fruity notes of apple, persimmon and ripe fruit, accompanied by vanilla and gourmet notes such as coconut and caramel. During the tasting a great sweetness takes hold of the palate with aromas of cookies mixed with fruity aromas of dried apricot and grape. In the finish, a slight bitterness highlights the tannins of the wood, sublimating the retro olfaction.
For this first edition, Yusuke Yahisa the Master Blender has carefully selected for his blend four different types of non-distilled whiskies distilled between 2017 and 2019: a whisky aged in ex-bourbon casks serving as the main frame, elegantly blended with a whisky aged in Sherry cask, another in Islay Quarter cask and a whisky aged in Mizunara oak cask.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.
