This highly unusual offering from the wonderful team at Impex represents one of the finest examples of Japanese whiskies we've ever come across. Distilled entirely in Japan from 100% Barley, it's labelled "Koji" Whisky, implying that asparilligus was used to aid in enzymatic breakdown of the grains prior to distillations. The key factor that distinguishes this special whisky from many of the other "single grain" whiskies from Japan, which are often distilled from rice and do not qualify under Japanese law as whisky, is that this whisky is produced exclusively from barley. After 17 years in oak, the character and complexity are undeniable. While the distillery cannot be named, there's no doubt that it was distilled by one of the masters of Japanese distillation. We were extremely skeptical, but after just one taste it was clear that this whisky would go down as one of the country's most delicious, unusual and indeed rare offerings to date. Only two casks were produced for The Impex Collection.
