Masahiro 12yr Oloroso Sherry Cask Pure Malt Whisky
This 12 year old malt whisky was distilled with 100% malted barley and selected from the best regions around the world. It was matured at Masahiro Distillery in Okinawa, Japan. The sub-tropical climate environment enabled this whisky to extract flavors from oak barrels at a faster rate, creating unique fruity flavors.
This unique Ryukyu whisky spent at least 11 years in American Oak ex-bourbon hogshead casks and finished in first filled Oloroso Sherry casks for 12 months before being bottled. This whisky reflects the dedication of Japanese craftsmanship and Masahiro Distillery’s 140 year history dating back to 1883.
