Amahagan World Malt Edition No. 2 Red Wine Oak Japanese Blended Malt Whisky 700ml

Crossing wine aroma and malt sweetness. Based on Edition No. 1, the distillery took on the challenge of ripening after taking advantage of the individuality of red wine cask flavours, and the outcome was outstanding! The appearance is a reddish and glossy brick colour. The flavour derived from red wine such as raisins and berries and the malty peculiar to Nagahama are in perfect harmony, and you can feel the refreshing orange peel afterwards. In the mouth, the unique sweetness of the grain spreads throughout, but the moderate astringency tightens the whole. Deep, integrated and complex. The colour is reddish and glossy brick. The flavour from red wines such as raisins and berries is in perfect harmony with the unique malt flavour of Nagahama. A refreshing aftertaste of orange peel can be enjoyed. The sweetness of grain carries through the finish with a long, moderate astringent taste. The flavours linger long after the sip.
