Discover Hatozaki 12Yr Small Batch Umeshu Cask Finish:

Hatozaki 12Yr Small Batch Umeshu Cask Finish represents a harmonious fusion of traditional Japanese whisky craftsmanship with the unique flavor profile imparted by umeshu casks. This spirit is distilled and aged in Japan, where meticulous attention to detail is a hallmark of the production process. The whisky itself is matured for twelve years, a period that allows for the development of complex flavors and aromas.

The choice of umeshu (plum wine) casks for finishing introduces an intriguing layer to this already sophisticated spirit. Umeshu, known for its sweet and tart character derived from Japanese ume plums, imparts subtle fruit notes that complement the whisky’s inherent characteristics. The interaction between the whisky and the residual elements from the plum wine within the wood grain enhances its profile with hints of stone fruit sweetness, adding depth without overpowering.

On nosing, one might detect a bouquet that weaves together ripe plums with whispers of vanilla and oak—a testament to both its time in wood and its final maturation stage in umeshu barrels. The palate likely follows through with a smooth texture where malted barley’s richness meets a delicate balance of sweetness and acidity from its cask finish.

Producer Notes: Kaikyo Distillery

Nestled in the scenic harbor city of Akashi in Japan, Kaikyo Distillery is a place where tradition and innovation blend to create exceptional spirits. This distillery is named after the nearby Akashi-Kaikyo bridge, which is a symbol of connection and strength. The Hatozaki family, with their rich history of sake brewing dating back to 1856, founded this distillery to venture into the world of whisky making.

Kaikyo Distillery has gained recognition for its meticulous craftsmanship and dedication to quality. One of their most notable creations is the Hatozaki Whisky, which pays homage to their heritage with its name derived from the oldest stone lighthouse in Japan. This whisky showcases a harmony of flavors that reflect both the local environment and the distillers’ expertise.

In addition to whisky, Kaikyo Distillery also produces other spirits such as gin. Their Akashi-Tai Shiraume Umeshu is a famous plum liqueur that combines sweet and tart flavors from locally sourced plums steeped in spirit made from rice – it’s like capturing the essence of Japanese springtime in a bottle.

Japanese Whiskey Varieties

Today's hugely successful commercial market for Japanese whiskey, which shares many of the production methods and ingredients with Scots, owes much to Masataki Taketsuru's research. In 1918, this Japanese citizen traveled to Scotland with the intention of studying organic chemistry, but became interested in the production of Scotch whiskey. Similar to Scotch whiskey, Japanese whiskey also uses malted barley as a base for fermentation and aging in wooden barrels. However, the commonly used Mizunara oak, instead of French or American oak, gives Japanese whiskey its unique character of spices and citrus fruits. There are several whiskey companies in Japan, but the two most famous and widely available are Suntory and Nikka. Both produce blended and single malt whiskeys and blended malt whiskeys, with their main blended whiskeys being Suntory kakubin and Black Nikka Clear. There are also many special and limited editions available.

Whiskey Varieties

Whiskey is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage that is made from fermented grain mash. It is a popular drink that is enjoyed by many people all over the world. Whiskey is known for its unique taste and aroma, which is derived from the type of grain used, the distillation process, and the aging process. There are many different varieties of whiskey, each with its own unique flavor and character.

One of the most popular types of whiskey is Scotch whiskey, which is made in Scotland. Scotch whiskey is made from malted barley, water, and yeast, and is aged in oak barrels for at least three years. There are two main types of Scotch whiskey: single malt and blended. Single malt Scotch whiskey is made from 100% malted barley and is produced by a single distillery. Blended Scotch whiskey, on the other hand, is made by blending different single malt whiskies together.

Another popular type of whiskey is Irish whiskey, which is made in Ireland. Irish whiskey is made from a blend of malted and unmalted barley, as well as other grains such as corn and rye. It is aged in oak barrels for at least three years. Irish whiskey is known for its smooth and mellow flavor, which is derived from the triple distillation process that it undergoes.

Bourbon whiskey is a type of whiskey that is made in the United States. It is made from a mash that contains at least 51% corn, as well as other grains such as rye, wheat, and barley. Bourbon whiskey is aged in new, charred oak barrels for at least two years. It is known for its sweet and smoky flavor, which is derived from the charred oak barrels.

Canadian whiskey is a type of whiskey that is made in Canada. It is made from a blend of different grains, including corn, rye, wheat, and barley. Canadian whiskey is aged in oak barrels for at least three years. It is known for its smooth and light flavor, which is derived from the fact that it is typically blended with other spirits.

There are many famous brands of whiskey, each with its own unique flavor and character. Some of the most popular brands of Scotch whiskey include Glenlivet, Macallan, and Lagavulin. These brands are known for their rich and complex flavors, which are derived from the aging process and the type of oak barrels used.

Jameson, Bushmills, and Tullamore Dew are some of the most popular brands of Irish whiskey. These brands are known for their smooth and mellow flavors, which are derived from the triple distillation process that they undergo.
