Fukano 10 Year
This exceptional single barrel from the premier producer of malted rice whisky in Japan reaches new levels of elegance. Aged for ten long years in toasted brandy puncheons, the oak still takes a backseat to the exceptionally smooth and fruit forward spirit. Nonetheless, we’re reaching the upper limits of what we’ve experienced in terms of aging this type of spirit and it retains plenty of texture without exhibiting any overt rice or sake flavors.
Nose: The aroma is delicate but thick with florals, mixed citrus, and sandalwood.
Taste: The palate opens up with a silky complexity stretching from exotic spices and mint to white plum and marmalade.
Finish: The palate is medium length and lingers with notes of marzipan and raisins.
Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 40-43%
