Shinobu Lightly Peated Pure Malt Whisky
Shinobu Lightly Peated Pure Malt whisky NAS and 10Y are the first peated whisky to be released by Shinobu distillery. Peated whisky was sourced from selected distilleries from mainly highland and Speyside regions and carefully blended by the master blender Mr Usami Ken and finished in Mizunara wood for more than 6 months.
All Shinobu whiskies are created without chill-filtration or added colour to protect and enhance their deeply complex, robust flavour.
Nose: Smells creamy and minty with some light peat and a touch of lemon. Hints of charcoal smoke and ash.
Palate: The peat tastes stronger on the palate, mingled with notes of charcoal smoke, ash, dry grass and a hint of saltiness.
Finish: Lingering taste of roasted wood with lots of sweetness from roasted malt. 700mL ABV 43%.
