Hanyu 1988 Single Bourbon Cask #9501 / Number One Drinks

A very rare single cask Hanyu, distilled in 1988 and matured in a ex-bourbon hogshead prior to being finished in Japanese oak. Bottled in 2007. 

Since its stills were turned off in 2000, Hanyu has become one of Japan's most sought after single malts. An economic recession at the turn of the millennium forced the distillery to shut its doors, and the remaining casks of its unblended whisky stock were purchased by Venture Whisky, a firm established by the Hanyu distillery founder's grandson, Ichiro Akuto, in 2004. In 2005 he bottled his first single casks under the Ichiro's Malt label.

One of only 352 bottles produced exclusively for Ichiro's Malt distributors in Europe, Number One Drinks.
