The Last Piece - Japanese Edition
The world’s first blended malt Japanese whisky made from original whisky aged for more than three years at five craft distilleries in Japan.
Fruity and smoky. The individuality of each distillery is combined like pieces of a puzzle, and while each asserts itself, they are united into one, allowing you to enjoy a complex and rich flavor.

The Last Piece - World Edition
More than half of the composition is made from sake from five Japanese craft distilleries, blended with carefully selected Scotch malts.
The rich individuality of the Japanese craft distilleries is connected by the gorgeous fruity flavor of the matured original distillate and the mellow sweetness and woodiness of the sherry cask original distillate. Thick and mellow flavor.

The malty and rich Japanese Edition and the nutty and slightly sweet World Edition are probably two different bottles for different tastes.
The Japanese Edition had a strong impression with its strong alcohol smell, pineapple-like sour sweetness, and woodiness, while the World Edition left a lasting impression with its nutty, ripe fruit and honey-inspired sweetness, and a solid feeling of Scotch malt.
According to him, “The undisclosed distillery’s original spirit does a good job. Maybe it’s rather obvious?” The author of this article also has some expectations. The author of this article also has some predictions, but they are not actually revealed as of now. If you have been drinking a lot of whisky, you may be able to identify it.
Finally, a bottler using only Japanese whiskey has been released. One cannot help but notice the development of Japanese whisky. Expectations are high for the further development of Japanese whiskey in the future.
