Description

New imports straight from the bottling hall!  Acorn Limited is the second oldest Independent bottler of Scotch whisky out of Japan. Mr. Tsuta released his first bottlings in 1999, keeping a low profile but a very high standard in quality. 

1. An Irish 17 year old Single Malt Whiskey by Acorn Ltd: 54.9% Likely from Cooley distillery, this Irish whiskey has a bit more get up and go than a lot of other examples out there with it’s spicy malt character and fruit forward flavours like a classic Irish malt usually presents. Grassy and fresh with a limey finish. Matured in a bourbon barrel and was bottled at a cask strength

2. Glen Keith 26 year old 1st fill Koval bourbon cask finish by Acorn Ltd: 50.7% Finishing in 1st fill ex-bourbon casks is a great way to add a big hit of flavour and sweetness to a whisky. After having reached quite a remarkable age already Mr. Tsuta had this Glen Keith re-racked into an Organic ex-bourbon cask from Koval distillery. It’s rare for a cask to be sold on with it’s naming still attached, but in this case it’s quite an asset.

3. Caol Ila 3 year old “Very Young” by Acorn Ltd: 61.3% It’s rare that a Caol Ila would be released at such a young age but here you have it. Sweet and clean, unadulterated by fancy wood and strangely syruppy on the palate.

4. Tennessee 8 year old “Musicienne” by Acorn Ltd: 58.6% Likely from the Dickel distillery, this single cask of Bourbon (though it can’t bear the name) whiskey was matured for the full 8 years in the U.S. before being transported to Scotland for bottling at natural cask strength. Think of ovaltine pieces and panela sugar, with orange rind and pipe tobacco.
