Ichiro’s Malt Mizunara Wood Reserve
$379.00 including GST
Bottled in 2010, this was crafted by Ichiro Akuto, this is a vatting of various single malts which have been aged in Japanese Mizunara oak. It?s an incredible whisky, with loads of character from the Japanese oak. Tangy and spicy upfront, with a peppery kick. The honey and fruity sweetness is there from the start ? with caramelized apple and citrus. Woodiness comes up fast though, with some sour and bitter notes. Surprisingly light body overall, given the relatively high ABV (46%).
