Kawasaki 1982 Ichiro's Choice
The Ichiro's Choice 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.
This is one of the very rare bottlings of Kawasaki by the company. Only a handful of single casks have ever been bottled from this lost Japanese grain distillery that was once part of the Sanraku-Ocean company alongside Karuizawa and Yamanashi, where this was aged.
Distilled in 1982, matured in refill Sherry butt at cask strength before being bottled in 2009.
One of 668 bottles.
