A single malt Newborn that was distilled and barreled in February 2018. Made with non-peated malt from the UK. After fermentation with distillery yeast and the first distillation in the wash still, out of Kanosuke Distillery’s two spirit stills, the second distillation took place in the spirit still that creates more body. The newmake whisky was barreled in re-charred American white oak casks that had previously been used to mature Komasa Jyozo’s barrel-aged rice shochu, Mellow Kozuru, and stored for 8 months in Kanosuke Distillery’s sea breeze-infused storehouse before being bottled at cask strength as a sweet and bright Newborn.
Amber, with the thickness
The slight sweetness of maple and roasted oak aroma
After an initial youthful mouthfeel, the sweetness of malt and freshness of green apples
A cinnamon-like spiciness that lingers on the tongue
