Hanyu 1995 Ichiro's Malt 15yo

A 15 year old Hanyu from the Ichiro's Malt line (while I think there is only one bottle with this style of label released in Europe, there are a few in Japan) This one was finished in a French oak cask and bottled at 46% vol. with 300 bottles.

  • Nose: Malt, sour, earthy, ume extract, oak, Gouda cheese & wine
  • Mouth: Malt, earthy, oily
  • Finish: Tannin, pepper, warm and long, sweet nuttiness, oily
Comment: Very typical Hanyu earthiness, but I find the oak to be a tad rough here. Generally a good Hanyu with some interesting flavors to discover.
