Tenjaku Japanese Blended Whisky 700ML
"TENJAKU" is the Japanese characters for the skylark (hibari), the much-loved herald of spring, and for this masterly blended whisky.
Starting with a mash bill of 86% corn and 14% barley, the whisky is then double copper pot distilled using some of the world’s most pristine waters from the Misaka Mountain range in the Mt. Fuji basin, 250 meters below the surface. This is the some of the purest water in the world and where the highest-grade sake’s source their water.
Finally, Tenjaku is aged in heavily seasoned Kentucky bourbon barrels resulting in a rich, full bodied malt flavor, with a grain taste that is toned down but freely allowed to express its individual characteristics.
