Amahagan World Malt Whisky Edition 04

Amahagan World Malt Whisky Edition 04

$134.99

Nagahama is a new(ish) distillery in Japan. It's also quite wee. So while we anxiously await the day they have their own mature whisky to release as 'Nagahama', we'll have to be content with 'Amahagan'. This is the fourth release in the Amahagan range, built on mature malt whisky sourced from abroad and married to the young Nagahama spirit. After vatting, the whisky was finished in Yamazakura casks (cherry tree wood). It's cool that they're forthright about it all. The transparency is refreshing, and we can't wait to see how their own malts turn out. 

And yes, Amahagan is Nagahama spelled backwards. 

Natural colour and non chill-filtered. 47%

700ml ml

Tasting Note (Ruben, Whisky Notes)

Nose: a juicy, fruity nose, on orange juice, apricots and plums. Rhubarb compote. Some vanilla notes, light biscuits perhaps. It reminds me of a young Glen Elgin for instance. Light hints of cherry blossom too, I’m (almost) sure it isn’t just the power of suggestion. Even whiffs of fabric softener appear (some of which have rather complex aromas these days).

Mouth: a similar idea of juicy fruits and bright floral notes. Pears and plums, with orange peels and hints of orange blossom. Vanilla custard. Hints of honey and light caramel sweetness. Then also a subtle touch of alcohol, which could be the portion of Nagahama new-make that went into this. Light peppery wood.

Finish: medium, on sweet wood, pepper and heathery notes.
