Single Malt Whisky Reviews from Australia

Please excuse the poor quality photo. Tried this gem at Shot Bar Zoetrope in Tokyo. 20yr old Hanyu at cask strength!


Eye: Light Mahogany

Nose: Peat with big hits of strawberry. Floral and vegetal. Clearly sherry influenced.

Palate: Wow that is seriously sweet. Sherried peat with a berry floral explosion.

Finish: Berries, peat and oak in perfect harmony. Very long finish.


Distillery: Hanyu
Age: 20yr's Old
Region: Japan
ABV: 57.5%
Limited: Yes

Whisky from Hanyu is phenomenal. Fingers crossed I get to try some more in the future.
