Is an artisanal distillery founded in 2013 in Otsu in the Shiga prefecture of Japan by Yoshiharu Takeuchi. Double pot still distilled from Muscavado sugar which is produced from Japanese cane sugar and Aged in 250lt medium toasted virgin American oak.
Tasted: March 2016
Pungent and youthful aromas with plenty of sweet, creamy American oak and hints of dried fruit. A lot sweeter than the French oak version with a sort of developing Jamaican-like tropical character. Lightly herbal with a sweet, medicinal note and hints of raw cane sugar. Gorgeous!

The palate is quite full and sweet with again plenty of Jamaican-esque sweet fruit and sweet oak. Quite intense and herbal with the higher abv balancing the sweetness of the fruit and the toffee’d sweetness of the oak. Long and herbal with thyme and coriander leaf. It remains relatively sweet with the pure American oak notes lingering.
