Description

Established in 1934 by an ex employee of the famed Suntory distillery.  The house style is peaty and robust.

This is an early release, possibly from the 2015 withdrawal era.

A big review from MaltReview in 2019, “immediately sweet, with caramel, but that salty brine from the coast comes out, with a fun smoky beach bonfire giving a lightly charred aroma with spitting crackling driftwood. There is a chili hot spice that is strong but mellows out, giving way to honeyed toasted oats. The mouthfeel is both waxy and oily; it dries out eventually, and the whisky becomes only just slightly bitter after some time. A little rubbery with a tannic sensation and the feeling of breathing in second hand smoke. Banana and jackfruit peppered with berries and freshly ground black pepper play on the tongue. Honey comb is present, flavoured with orange zest and lemon balm. The finish is medium with a slow chili white pepper burn on the back of the throat. The fruitiness stays, but then that, brine takes over, giving my taste buds a little numbing tingle”.
