Araside 7YO Single Cask Whisky 荒川７年單桶威士忌 (限量304支)
Araside Whisky, distilled in a world-known Japanese distillery in Chichibu-shi, Saitama. After the whisky was made, it was transferred to Scotland once to mature in vintage cask. This Araside Whisky was matured in a Ex-Glenrothes 1970 cask for 7 years, which is relatively long-aged comparing to whisky from the same distillery. Bottled at 55.0% as an undiluted single cask whisky, with 304 bottles in total.
Quite a special one to whisky from the same distillery, and it is a good way to experience how Japanese whisky is when maturing in different country.
而這一支荒川威士忌熟成的酒桶，是於 1970 年開始陳釀過 Glenrothes 的橡木桶，並經過7年的熟成過程，比起同廠威士忌來說是較老的年份 。它以單桶和不稀釋的情況下裝瓶 304 支，酒精度為 55.0%，香氣主要為橡木香、肉桂粉和啤梨等組成 ；而口感頗為油潤，入口時非常甜美，再慢慢走出橡木香；再以茶和木質等香味結尾。讓你體驗由同一家威士忌蒸餾所的成品，但在其他國家熟成後的分別的一支威士忌。
●Japanese Single Cask Whisky
A fresh nosing with hints of oak, cinnamon and pear, and it comes with a bomb of sweetness and a bit of oaky on palate. It ends with a woody, and tea-like finish.
