Most of the blended whiskies released by the Saburomaru distillery have been blends of the Saburomaru distillery’s malt whisky and foreign-produced grain whisky.
This time, the blended malt whisky is a blend of the Saburomaru distillery’s malt whisky and malt whisky from overseas. Although it is limited to the distillery, it seems that each person can purchase up to two bottles. The capacity is slightly smaller at 500 ml, but more people may purchase it.
Since this is Batch.1, when Batch.2 or Batch3 is released in the future, it will probably be blended with more carefully selected malt whisky. It will be interesting to see how the flavor changes in the future.
A single cask distilled in the cast pod still “ZEMON” was released on August 28 at the “Hokuriku Coca-Cola Summer Festival” and became a hot topic.
Furthermore, a single malt whisky is scheduled to be released within this year. Now the time has finally come.
I am looking forward to seeing what kind of flavor it will have.
