It was ultimately mothballed in 2000, and the dwindling stock that’s left tends to make high end whisky buyers swoon. It is into this realm that online Japanese whisky retailer Dekanta has stepped, with word of a new 35 year old series that’s been inspired by Shibari, which is a Japanese style of artistic rope bondage (more on that below).
