product Details

Hanyu 1991 Ichiro's Malt 'Card' #401 / Nine of Clubs

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.

Distilled in 1991 and bottled in 2011 from cask #401. 

Initially matured in hogshead prior to being finished in a Bourbon barrel.

One of 238 bottles.
