Shinobu 10yo Pure Malt Mizunara
This product is currently sold out.
Located in the Niigata prefecture of Japan, Shinobu distillery is the brainchild of Ken Usami- a brewer who dreams of being a distiller. While building the distillery to realise that dream, Mr. Usami has applied his discerning palette to the art of blending. He chooses casks from around the world and further ages them, first in bourbon and sherry casks but then in rare native Japanese oak, Mizunara.
‘Pure Malt’ signifies that this is 100% malted barley spirit from multiple distilleries. The distinctive tea like tannin from the Mizunara oak is obvious here, balancing a pear and plum sweetness. Easy sipper with a point of interest!
