The Chugoku Juzo brewery/distillery was established in 1918 in Hiroshima and makes whisky on the side. This Togouchi whisky uses Scottish malt and Canadian grains. Ageing, blending, and bottling are all carried out in Japan however. The blend therefore has both a Scottish and Canadian character, not to mention a Japanese soul. Aged in oak barrels for 18 years, before being bottled, this whisky is characterized by intense woody and cereal aromas, and mixed with delicate notes of peat. We have no doubt that you will appreciate this.
*This particular bottling was produced prior to the introduction of Japanese whisky labeling standards in February 2021.*
