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 an 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 countries.
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.
