Made with the patience and precision of the Samurai, so you can drink whisky like a warrior.
If Niigata is famed for the Three White Treasures—snow, rice and sake—local distillery Shinobu’s vintage expressions are the true mahogany treasures. A sensational sequel to Shinobu’s 10 year, this pure malt whisky spends a full 15 years aging and imparting the profound flavors of bourbon barrels, sherry and of course Japan’s prized and precious Mizunara Oak. Magnificent and multidimensional, this award-winning selection boasts deep wood aromas sweetened with nectar and fruit notes. A decade and a half in the barrel brings a complex aftertaste of sweet malt and awakening spice. Emergent flavors of lemon peel, cinnamon and ginger make this 15-Year Pure Malt Whisky one of Master Blender Ken Usami’s most unique and notable creations.
