Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré soutenu.
  • Nose : ample, ferme. Très légèrement animal (bacon, lard fumé), il possède beaucoup de montant. Une fine pellicule de suie accentue cette sensation de profonde maturité. Certains y décèleront des notes d’encaustique, de fleurs des champs et de terre légèrement humide. Au fil du temps, des épices lui procurent beaucoup de tonus.
  • Palate : droite, tendue. Elle se montre d’emblée fruitée (melon jaune, pomme, coing) avant d’évoluer vers un registre plus herbacé et végétal (tabac, menthe blanche). À l’aération, la fin de bouche devient extrêmement exotique (banane, ananas) et épicée (cannelle, girofle).
  • Overall : longue. A l’instar de la bouche, elle fait preuve d’une remarquable puissance d’expression. Les épices se font de plus en plus fortes et les fruits deviennent confits. De leur côté, les fleurs, notamment l’iris, se transforment en concrète. La rétro-olfaction est marquée par le toffee et les noix sèches. Le verre vide revient sur les notes animales du premier nez.
The brand

The brand

Hanyu was founded by the grandfather of Ichiro Akuto in the 1940s, near Tokyo. In 1980, with the aim of beginning single malt production at the distillery, two pot stills were bought and installed in the distillery, but as the Japanese did not yet have a taste for blends, in 2000 the distillery was closed and finally, in 2004, demolished. Its stock, after spending some years in a sake brewery in the north of Japan, was then bought by Ichiro who created his own brand, “Ichiro’s Malt”, in 2005. The hundred-odd casks that still remain can now be found at Chichibu and are bottled under different labels, including the famous “Card Series” range.
