Hatozaki Small Batch 12 Year Old Umeshu Cask Finish is a 100% hand-crafted malt whisky, a blend of premium single malts, each aged for a minimum of 12 years in American Oak casks before being married and then further finished in bespoke barrels that previously held superior Umeshu liqueur for an additional 6 months.
Without coloring or chill filtration this perfectly balanced whisky is complemented with subtle accents of sweet infused Japanese plum.
Hatozaki Small Batch 12 Year Old Umeshu Cask finish has a rich profile of cereals, with iodine notes, fresh pear, apricots, and a delicate hint of malty honey. The yellow plum finish brings a lasting touch of sweetness.
The Yonezawa family’s experimentation with distilling started over a century ago, in 1917, and has been part of their legacy ever since. In the build-up to their celebration of 100 years of spirit production, the company decided to replace their old stills with new copper twin pot-stills made by the famous Scottish company Forsyth’s. The new facility has been designed to produce Single Malt Whisky as well as other spirits and has been named The Kaikyo Distillery after the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge that lies in front of the distillery.
