Karuizawa and Kawasaki Ghost Series #7 / Time Slip
The latest Nonjatta Ghost series release, #7 is an incredibly exciting release, the whisky is a blend of malt from Karuizawa and grain from Kawasaki - both legendary closed Japanese distilleries.
The whisky was blended at birth and laid to rest in glass, not oak! During the 1980s the liquid was then returned to wood, an ex-Spanish oak that had previously contained Karuizawa spirit. This 'finishing' or 'Aceing' period occured until bottling late in 2015.
The guys at Nonjatta, perhaps as no suprise got incredibly excited by this, hence after tasting it they realised something had to be done to release this intriguing bottle of whisky.
The label features the print 'The Ghost of Taira no Tomomori Appears at Daimotsu Bay' from Yoshitoshi's 'New Forms of 36 Ghosts'.
Bottle number 231 of 282.
