Hinotori means "phoenix" in Japanese, which explains the illustration on the bottle and the box of this whisky!
The small Papanese distillery Hinotori was founded in 1949. It has launched this limited edition for its 70 year anniversary.
Developed on Honshu Island (Japan's largest island), this 5-year-old blend is a mix of grain and malt whiskies.
Hinotori 5 years old has aged in American oak barrels (white oak) that have already served for the aging of other whiskies.
It is a non chill-filtered whisky.
