2. Single Malt Nagahama THE FIRST BATCH

On October 11, 2022 (Tuesday), “Single Malt Nagahama THE FIRST BATCH”, the first single malt vatted from the distillery’s own original distillate, will go on sale.

The Nagahama Distillery began operations in 2016 as a project to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Nagahama Roman Beer, which was founded in 1996, at the same facility. We are very pleased to be able to offer our first single malt, which was created by vatting our own distilled spirits, after 5 years of operation. We are very pleased to be able to offer you our first single malt, which was created by vatting our own distillates.

In the spirit of “one brew, one barrel,” we have carefully selected only the finest malt from among the bottles in our aging cellar, using bourbon, sherry, Islay Quarter, and Quercus barrel-aged bottles distilled between 2017 and 2019, and carefully blended using the technology and experience we have cultivated in the “AMAHAGAN”. The blending was carefully done using the techniques and experience cultivated at “AMAHAGAN”.

We hope you will enjoy not only the malty and mellow flavor typical of Nagahama Distillery, but also the exquisite harmony created by the characteristics of the different casks.

[Tasting comment]
Appearance: Akane color like the setting sun on the shore of Lake Biwa.
Nose: Ripe fruit aroma reminiscent of red apples and persimmons. Sweet vanilla, coconut and caramel. With time, fresh aromas of raspberry and cranberry.
Mouth: Very smooth on the palate. Dry oaky flavor to freshly baked raisin sandwiches and apricot dried fruit. Then herbal essence reminiscent of black tea. Bitter and dry taste from the oak rounds out the entire palate.
