Hanyu Ichiro's Malt The Joker Card Series - Colour Label 70cl / 57.7%
22 April 2015
This Japanese whisky comes from the now sadly defunct 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 Cards 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.
The casks used to create this bottling included a combination of Madeira, Cognac, sherry, puncheon, hogshead, chibidaru and bourbon.
