The Ginkgo blended malt is composed of Japanese malts blended together by Ichiro Akuto. Bottled at 46% vol. and limited to 6000 bottles. I think this was bottled around 2007.

  • Nose: Vanilla, mint, some citric/lemon, floral and some earthiness (Hanyu?)
  • Mouth: Dry oak, cinnamon, malt, various woods
  • Finish: Relatively dry, cinnamon again, lemon, all sorts of spices and some smoke 
Comment: This is pretty interesting and fairly complex. Although some roughness seems to shimmer trough here and there (like some older and some young whisky blended together). The overall profile is a bit unusual, definitely try this one out if you get the chance.
