Fuyu Small Batch Blended Japanese Whisky 40% 70cl
'Fuyu' means 'winter' in Japanese, but there's nothing specific about this blend of malt and grain whiskies that links it to that particular chilly season. According to BBC Spirits, who source and blend the product, the whiskies are sourced from distilleries on the island of Honshu - the main island of Japan, on which 8 of the 9 currently operating distilleries reside. So while that doesn't narrow it down much, there is at least some confidence that this is a true Japanese whisky, as opposed to other brands which are using spirits from the likes of Scotland and Canada.
A scattering of sources claim this is a mix of 80% grain and 20% malt, aged for an average of 3 years. So we're not looking at anything particular massive, but it has to be said this is an extremely pleasant dram to enjoy. One of the issues with Japanese whisky right now is the rapid increase in prices coupled with a severe downturn in care and quality of the actual spirit itself, so when you find one that is a) a decent price and b) tastes good, it's a nice surprise.
Slightly on the sweet side, this will certainly appeal to those who enjoy the likes of Hibiki Harmony, as it has a similar profile without the price tag (although admittedly the complexity isn't quite as dense) and it will also work really well in a top notch whisky sour.
