Fukano 10 Year Whisky
Distilled from rice, Fukano’s 10-year-age-statement bottling is a beautiful combination of new and refilled American and European Oak casks. Butterscotch, coconut and lychee coat the palate, with a finish of candied apple.
Founded in 1823, Fukano Distillery is located in Hitoyoshi City, of the Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Hitoyoshi is surrounded by mountains and is known for its pure water and nature. Shigeruriku Fukano is the fifth generation of his family to run the distillery. They use a combination of malted and un-malted rice to make their whisky in a pot still. These releases are very limited in nature and only a few casks are bottled each year.
