Shibui Pure Malt is a vatted malt whisky, meaning it uses whiskies from multiple distilleries. This particular blend combines Japanese malt whisky with Scotch malt whisky from the Lowlands region. It's matured in three cask types: ex-bourbon barrels, oloroso sherry casks, and rare Japanese mizunara oak casks. This maturation process gives it a complex flavor profile.

Description

Color

Light gold, hinting at a light touch on the palate and minimal sherry influence.

Aroma

It offers a unique profile compared to traditional single malts. Some reviewers describe it as “waking up in a field in some exotic place.” 

Taste

Smooth and easy-drinking: It avoids harsh edges often found in young whiskies.

Flavor Profile: Expect a combination of:

  • Mellow malt syrup
  • Vanilla
  • Spice (think true cinnamon again)
  • A unique woodiness – some describe it as “swampy” or “roasted exotic wood” with hints of dark coffee.

Finish

Fairly long: It lingers pleasantly on the tongue.

Balanced: There’s a good balance between sweetness and a touch of bitterness, with the roasted coffee and spice notes lingering.
