Each year the Shinshu distillery proposes a limited edition of its emblematic whisky whose evolution over the years reveals the typical signature of the Komagatake single malt.
This 2021 version expresses a rich and complex aromatic profile characterized by a malty and fruity nose that when tasted in the mouth reveals aromas of melon, quince with some notes of honey and hazelnut all wrapped in an oily texture. The finish allows the different aromas to disappear with elegance, leaving room for a slight bitterness.
Located in the heart of the Japanese Alps in a protected natural setting, the Shinshu distillery benefits from a pure water filtered during hundreds of years through the granite rocks of the surrounding mountains. To compose this small batch version 2021, Hajime Kunai, the Master Blender of the House, has selected several bourbon and sherry casks all aged in the distillery's cellars.
