Hatozaki small batch sees the marriage of both malt and grain whiskies, including whisky distilled in Japan and imported stocks. The whisky is named after the Hatozaki lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse in Japan. The liquid is aged in many different cask types, including sherry, bourbon and Mizunara oak, imparting a complex flavour profile. Light, sweet malty aromas alongside more cereal notes and fragrant lemongrass. On the palate you get the grain sweetness, a touch of honey and barrel char, with some orange blossom. With an oily nuttiness appearing on the finish.
