Hanyu Ichiro's Malt The Joker Card Series - Colour Label 70cl / 57.7%
A bottle of Ichiro's Malt The Joker Japanese Single Malt Whisky from the Card series bottled at a cask strength of 57.7% ABV. This was imported to the UK by Number One Drinks Company Ltd.
This Japanese whisky comes from the Hanyu distillery, which stopped distilling in 2000 and was dismantled in 2004. At the time Ichiro Akuto, the grandson of the founders of Hanyu distillery, decided to purchase the remaining stock and bottle it as the Card series.
This is one of the last two Card series bottlings, released to complete the 54 bottle set: one Joker in colour and one in Black and White. This is the Colour Joker, a vatting of 14 casks covering vintages between 1985 and 2000.
This is bottle number 3432 of 3690.
