Hanyu 1985 Ace of Spades Single Cask #9308 /  First Release​

Perhaps the second most talked about bottle within Ichiro Akuto's famous Card Series of whiskies.  The Ace of Spades was released in 2006 and comes from a traditional oak cask that was re-racked into a single Spanish oak sherry butt #9308 before bottling in 2006.

This is the first release which was distilled in 1985 and then bottled around 20 years later in 2005 yielding only 122 bottles.

This is bottle number 60.

Please note that the first release bottling was not produced with the metal foil seal that appears on most of Akuto's bottlings, but a glossy plastic seal instead.

Important Notice

Please be advised that the absence of any specific condition reports does not imply that this bottle is in perfect condition. We recommend close inspection of all images prior to placing any bids, and any further information required can be provided upon request.

Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
