Hanyu 1988 Ichiro's Malt 'The Game' #471 / Shinanoya 10th Anniversary
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 is an exclusive bottling from Japanese food and spirits importer, Shinanoya. This is the 6th release in their acclaimed "The Game" series which is a single cask Hanyu, distilled in 1988 and matured in hogshead #471.
One of 192 bottled.
