A cask strength variant of Kaiyo Whisky, a Japanese teaspooned malt which has endured a maturation in mizunara casks - known for being expensive though difficult for coopers to work with. These whiskies also spend part of their maturation at sea, as to help develop their flavour profiles.
Spiced oak, fresh lemongrass and orange oil on the nose.
Peppery at first on the palate, though soon enough wafts of buttery pastry, clove and espresso develop.
Lingering peppercorn heat and a whisper of caraway on the finish.
