product Details

Hanyu 1991 The Nectar of the Daily Drams 19 Year Old Red Oak Heads

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.

This single cask bottling of Hanyu was distilled in 1991 and bottled in 2010 for The Nectar in Belgium. Cask number #377 was fitted with red oak heads.

The Nectar was founded in Belgium in 2006 by Mario Groteklaes and Jan Broekmans. In addition to being a well-respected independent bottler, they are also one of Belgium's largest wine and spirit importers.
