product Details

Hanyu 2000 ‘The Game’

This is a bottle from a Japanese food and spirits importer called Shinanoya exclusively for the Japanese market.

In 2012 at the Tokyo Whisky Festival, Shinanoya presented this new bottling of Hanyu 2000, bottled for their 5th Anniversary. This is the third release in their acclaimed The Game series which contains Hanyu from the final year that the distillery was producing.

The spirit has been finished for three and a half years in an highly unusual hogshead with Red Oak ends. Red Oak (Quercus Rubra) is rarely used for whisky casks because the wood has very open pores in the growth rings so casks have a tendency to leak.

Bottle number 88 of 309.
