Kanosuke Single Malt 2021 SECOND EDITION Bottling Note

The Kanosuke Single Malt 2021 SECOND EDITION is a well-balanced and flavorful whisky. It is made with non-peated malt and aged in bourbon casks as the key ingredient, vatted in multiple casks, and bottled at cask strength.

It was distilled in 2018 and aged for 3 years in bourbon casks. It has a rich and complex flavor profile with notes of vanilla, caramel, honey, ripe fruits, and a hint of spice. The fruit notes are more pronounced on the palate, with hints of grapefruit, peach, and apricot. The finish is long and lingering, with a touch of oak.

The main difference between the SECOND EDITION and the FIRST EDITION is the type of casks used for maturation. The FIRST EDITION was made from barrels that had been used to age Komasa Brewery’s signature product, the rice shochu “Mellow Kozuru”. This gave the whisky a unique flavor profile with notes of fresh fruit, sweetness, and spice. The Kanosuke Single Malt 2021 SECOND EDITION is described as vatting multiple barrels with the key being the original spirit aged in bourbon barrels. This is a more common type of cask for aging whisky, and it is expected to give the SECOND EDITION a sweeter, fruitier flavor with more vanilla and oak spice.

Ultimately, the best way to decide which version you prefer is to try both of them. However, if you are looking for a unique and flavorful whisky with a lot of complexity, the FIRST EDITION is a great option. If you are looking for a more traditional whisky with a sweeter and fruitier flavor, the SECOND EDITION is a good choice.
