"Single Malt Kanosuke 2022 LIMITED EDITION 59% 700ml" is a single malt Japanese whisky that is produced at the Kanosuke Distillery using all three of their pot stills. It is aged in a variety of oak barrels for three years and then blended together to create a whisky that embodies the distillery's concept of "MELLOW LAND, MELLOW WHISKY." This whisky was produced between 2017 and 2019 and is made with unpeated malt. It is bottled at cask strength from a blend of barrels, with sherry casks playing a key role in its flavor. In contrast to the 2021 FIRST and 2021 SECOND releases, which mainly used re-charred American white oak ex-"Mellowed Kozuru" aged rice shochu casks and bourbon barrels, respectively, this whisky is characterized by the rich and enticing aromas of sherry cask-aged malt. The flavor of this whisky lingers on the palate like the sun setting slowly over the East China Sea. Tasting notes for this whisky include a reddish amber color, a nose of lemon tea, honey, ume plum, and Japanese nikki cinnamon, a taste of dried berries, coffee candy, and old woodiness, and a finish that is spicy with a pleasantly lingering bittersweetness.
