Ichiro’s Malt | Wine Wood Reserve
Ichiro's Malt Wine Wood Reserve includes malt distilled at the now-closed Hanyu distillery. This was matured – including a finishing period in French oak ex-wine casks – vatted and bottled at Chichibu.
Initially very vinous indeed, like a Bordeaux finish. This leads to black cherries, blackberry jam, yellow apples. Hints of violets and toffee. A little chocolate. Black liquorice. Also a certain leathery or fragrant side (oriental spices).
