The Koshi-No Shinobu Bottling Note
Here we have a blended whisky, Shinobu, which translates as "perseverance" or "patience" in Japanese. A marriage of 50% malt and 50% grain whisky, it's first matured in sherry and bourbon casks before a finishing period in Japanese Mizunara oak. Nicely buttery and woody, and ought to make a fabulous Highball.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Lemon curd and buttery grain sweetness, with mint white chocolate and fragrant wood.
Palate: Fresh, oily malt, with hints of orange and sherry influence alongside creamy coconut.
Finish: Lasting notes of chocolate and creamy vanilla.
