Japanese Blended Malt Whisky
Hatozaki Pure Malt Whiskey is a mixture of several different malt whiskeys that are aged in imported bourbon and sherry casks, as well as the country’s own Mizunara oak barrels.
The distillery is designed to produce Japanese single malt whiskey and has been named the Kaikyo Distillery after the famous Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge that lies in front of the distillery. While the single malt matures in the warehouses, they have produced this blended malts.
Lots of sweet malt with influence from the different cask types
Crushed, dried fruits with a slight hint of smoke
The sweetness and malt linger with the smoke and finally finish with honey
A super nice dram!
“Elegant, rounded and easy to drink”, this is how the Kaikyō distillery itself describes Hatozaki – “our whiskey is the icing on the cake for relaxing moments with friends, family and other people you love. From the curious amateur to the seasoned connoisseur; Hatozaki welcomes everyone.”
Hatozaki was named after the oldest stone lighthouse in Japan, a symbol of safety and guidance from ancient times, which has thus been inducted into Japan’s List of Historic Monuments. Hatozaki’s design is strongly inspired by the soft and naturalistic art form used in the Edo period (1603-1868), Hatozaki incorporates a deep respect for the Scotch whisky, to which Japanese whiskey itself is indebted.
