Collectors will be keen to get their hands on the first single malt whisky from new Japanese distillery, Kanosuke, founded in 2017 by Komasa Jozo, a large shochu producer in the Kagoshima prefecture. Distilled using unpeated malt in 2017 (the first year of production) and 2018 , the whisky was matured in a mix of re-charred American white oak barrels and ex- Kozuru barrels (a barrel-aged sochu developed by the company in the late '50s and one of their flagship products). Blended after three years of maturation, it's described as a soft and fruity malt, with orchard fruits, sweet oak and spice. 58% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered. Very limited stocks.

Notes from the producers.... Nose: Lime, prune, raisin butter. Taste: Mellow and woody, vanilla, Nikki cinnamon. Finish: Bittersweetness of chocolate-covered candied orange peel, soft sea breeze.
