Hakushu Spanish Oak 2021 revealed

Suntory has just opened the official page for a lottery for Hakushu Spanish Oak 2021, a limited edition NAS version of the company's famed foresty and delicate single malt. It's due October 26, 2021. 

First the lottery details: as always you'll need a Japanese address, and you have until October 26, 2021 at 11:59PM JST to apply. 300 winners will be allowed to purchase a bottle of Hakushu Spanish Oak 2021 for 11,000 yen. I always feel weird saying you might "win" a chance to buy something, but Japanese whisky in 2021, here we are.

Suntory says we should expect cacao, manuka honey, and dark chocolate on the nose, then soft sweetness and slight bitterness on the palate. The finish is "smooth" and has just the right amount of bitterness.

700ml, 11,000 yen before tax, and 47% abv. No word yet on how many bottles we'll see outside of this online lottery.
