Auction Ended: Sunday 01 December, 2019

Winning Bid: £4,000.00

Estimate: £4000 - £5000
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 occurred until bottling late in 2015. The guys at Nonjatta, perhaps as no surprise 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 218 of 282.

Length: No Age Statement.
