    Review from Mr Serge Valentin:
    Nikka Malt 100 ‘Hakata’ (43%, OB, blended malt, +/-2015?) Five stars
    This one’s ‘said’ to contain only Yoichi and Miyagikyo. We shall believe them. Not sure when it was produced. Colour: deep gold. Nose: hold on, this is something else! It is a pretty fantastic nose, full of golden raisins, herbs jellies and jams, eucalyptus syrup, honeydew, pollens, with a wee whiff of bicycle inner tube (by the way, congrats on the rugby, Japan), as well as properly botrytised sweet white wine (which, in turn, displays pineapple, roses, apricots, a few toasted notes etc.). Mouth: really fantastic, old style, sappy and dry at first (pine needles), then sweeter and rounder, with many raisins and honeys, as well as chamomile and honeysuckle teas. And those notes of cedarwood that we used to find in older Japanese whiskies. Finish: rather long, on Jaffa cakes, with spicier touches. Cloves, caraway, cinnamon, but quite scandalously, no umami! I’m joking… Oh and forgot to mention peat. Comments: tastes like an older expression, this is totally unmodern! Any clues, my friend? Love this one but apparently, and unless you’re ready to shell out massive amounts of Internet money, this is only available in the city of Hakata/Fukukoa. Boo!
    SGP:6612 - 90 points.

    The characters on the bottle reads Hakata. Contains Yoichi & Miyagikyo malts.  Produced solely for a city in Japan called Hakata (modern name: Fukuoka)
