Tasting Notes

Founded in 1949, this independent distillery is owned by the Hombo family and is currently the highest altitude distillery in the country, situated nearly 800 meters in the sky. Iwai-san looms large in Japanese whisky lore for, among other things, being the first person to install a Coffey Still for whisky production. The entry-level Iwai is a blended whisky comprised primarily of corn with a bit of malted barley aged entirely in used bourbon barrels. Notes include apple butter, apricots, honey, oak spice, red tea, a hint of ginger, and more. A great value all around.
