FUYU Mizunara is a 3-year-old blend made up of 50% malt and 50% grain. This whisky is matured in American white oak barrels, with a six month finishing period in mizunara oak barrels. Mizunara means "water and oak," and what makes it special is the fact that it contains a high amount of natural moisture and is incredibly permeable. These qualities produce aromas that are completely unique to Japanese whiskies matured in mizunara barrels. Today, mizunara barrels represent only 10% of the whiskies aged in Japan.

Tasting Notes: The aroma is refined, elegant and fresh with honey, apricot and caramel notes. The whisky is fresh in the attack with pear and apple flavors. It lingers on the palate and finishes with jammy fruit flavors and a touch of caramel.
