Distillery: Shinobu (Niigata)
Size: 700 ml
Niigata is known in Japan for its “Three White” treasures, i.e. snow, rice and sake, and a naturally blessed environment for a pure water source. Made in Niigata, SHINOBU (meaning “Forbearance” in Japanese) Whisky is handcrafted by the creative master blender, Mr Usami, by carefully selecting whisky from different distilleries which are first matured in ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks and then finishing them with precious Japanese Mizunara oak.
Softly roasted nuts, jellied pear, and honeysuckle all come through on the nose of this Japanese whisky. Black pepper and clove come through early on the palate, ripe citrus fruit and baked apples developing before a long, smooth finish.
