A cosmopolitan Japanese Whisky blend.
 
The Chugoku Juzo distillery was founded a century ago near Hiroshima and has been making Sake and Shochu since. Then, the Nineties came, and they decided to import cool foreign Whiskies, blend them and mature them in Japan. Since Japanese laws are pretty chill, they can be sold as Japanese Whisky. A neat trick, but it aint’ a con: most of the blenders are pretty straight-forward about the Whiskies they use.
 
In Togouchi’s case, its ingredients are Scotch and Canadian grain Whiskey. What’s awesome here is what they do with those Spirits. There’s a 360 meters long railway tunnel drilled through a mountain in Nishi Chugoku Sanchi that was never actually completed. The temperature is constantly 57°F and humidity is 80% all the time. One man’s failed public transport project is another man’s maturing facility. This particular bottle is 18 years old and is premium as hell. Expect lush oak notes and bright fruity touches.
