Ichiro's Malt Double Distilleries is a marriage of casks from the Hanyu and Chichibu distilleries; pure malt that combines sweetness and conciseness.
A sweetness that comes in part from maturation in Japanese oak casks. The conciseness derives from the ex-sherry and hogshead casks from which the malt from the Hanyu distillery has benefited.
