Ichiro's Malt Double Distilleries+Peated / Ghost Series #10

This is the tenth in the Yoshitorshi Ghost Series, a selection of rare Japanese whiskies from Stefan Van Eycken, a whisky enthusiast and author of Whisky Rising: The Definitive Guide to the Finest Whiskies and Distillers of Japan.

Each bottle in the collection features a Yukiyo-e artwork from Yoshitoshi's New Forms of 36 Ghosts.

This is a vatting of the Ichiro's Malt Double Distilleries blended malt, which contains Chichibu and Hanyu, along with some peated Chichibu single malt, hence Double Distilleries+Peated. Bottled at cask strength in 2018.

The Ichiro's Malt brand is produced by Japanese firm, Venture Whisky, and is named after their founder, Ichiro Akuto. Venture Whisky was established in 2004 after Ichiro acquired the remaining unblended stocks of single malt from his grandfather's Hanyu distillery. Ichiro's Malt was born the following year, with the release of the original 'Card' series single casks of Hanyu. The company then opened its own distillery in 2008, the increasingly sought-after Chichibu. In addition to bottling these two single malts, the Ichiro's Malt brand has also produced a number of sought after blended whiskies like this over the years.
