Hanyu Ichiro's Malt 1991 - 'Cards' Jack of Clubs
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 Jack of Clubs from the highly collectible Cards series. Distilled in 1991 then matured until 2006 firstly in a Hogshead cask and latterly in an American Oak Sherry Butt before bottling in 2006 by Sasanokawa.
No Chill Filtering. No colouring.
