This is a blended malt named in honor of Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky. He is the first Japanese who mastered whisky-making in Scotland and produced the genuine whisky in Japan. Masataka learned that the natural resources surrounding a distillery were essential for quality whisky. Based on his thought, he selected two places, Yoichi and Miyagikyo, and built two distilleries there.
The whisky is a blend of aged single malt casks from Yoichi and Miyagikyo and showcases an exquisite balance between great softness and deep complexity. Miyagikyo remains predominant in the blend but a higher portion of Yoichi is used in this new edition giving the whisky a more expressive character. The main barrel influence comes from Miyagikyo & Yoichi ex-Sherry casks and Miyagikyo which has been aged in American oak.
A blend of Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whiskies which underwent a secondary maturation in Mossburn Cask Bill #2. These were specially built Oloroso Sherry Butts with heavily charred virgin American Oak heads which enhance the richness, depth and spicy vanilla flavours.
Blended from a careful selection of fine peated Single Malts distilled on the Islands of Scotland. Double barrelled for added depth and a mellow oak-spice finish. Second maturation in first-fill Bourbon barrels
Big, opulent Bourbon (in a bottle to match) with a nose that's full of bright lemon, pure vanilla layered over an almost cake-like seam of malt. There's more of the same on the palate alongside welcoming notes of muscovado sugar and spice.
Complex and well balanced as malt lovers have come to expect from Mossburn Speyside, with subtle banana and vanilla on the nose, and rum raisin undertones on the palate
