A lovely blended pure malt Spirit triple-wood aged on the shores of Osaka Bay.

Akashi Sake Brewery has been on Osaka Bay from more than one-hundred and fifty years. As popular as Sake has been for hundreds of years, Whisky is now a cultural touchstone in Japan where they have embraced the Spirit as much as any other place on the planet. They recently expanded on their proud tradition by launching Kaikyo Distillery nearby. To avoid naming confusion, they have launched their first Whisky brand — Hatozaki — along with two signature malt Whisky releases.

Hatozaki Pure Malt Whisky is made from 100% malted barley Spirit — including local distillery inventory and imported Spirit. It has been matured in three different cask types, including ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry, and Mizunara oak. And as those specifications suggest, it produces a nuanced and layered flavor profile with rich undertones of exotic wood. And it is delivered at a perfect 46% ABV without colorings or chill-filtration.

Smartass Corner#1: 
Hatozaki Lighthouse is the oldest stone lighthouse in Japan. It sits at the opening of Akashi Harbor. Built in the pagoda style, it was constructed in 1657. Its official name is "Kyu Hakozaki Torodo" which means "Hakozaki stone lantern house."

Smartass Corner #2: 
Small differences in names are very important in Japan. Akashi Sake Brewery is not the same as Akashi Whisky from Eigashima Distillery. And Kaikyo Distillery is not the same as Kaiyo Whisky.

Appearance / Color

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The fragrance is alive with dried apricots, sweet toasted malt, sandalwood, and toasted spices.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
A rich note of toasted granola clusters opens on the tongue followed by sultanas, stone fruits, baking spices, and vanilla cream.

Finish
The finish is long and warm with a surprising whiff of something smoky at the end of it all.
