Hanyu Ichiro's Malt "Cards" 1986 - King of Spades

This Single malt whisky is from the Hanyu distillery, that was located in a town bearing its name on the banks of the Tone river. The distillery was surrounded by barley and paddy fields. Hanyu was making malt whisky in the traditional Scottish way, but unfortunately stopped distilling in 2000.

The pot-stills and other whisky equipment were completely dismantled in 2004 because of a change of ownership. Fortunately the stock and facilities were saved by Ichiro, the grandson of the founders of the Hanyu distillery. His new distillery is now situated on the hill of Chichibu, where he was born. He started making whisky again in February 2008.
This is the King of Spades from the highly collectible Cards series. Distilled in 1986 and matured in a Hogshead & then in a Bourbon Barrel until being bottled in 2007 by Sasanokawa.
