Footnotes

  • "Inevitably, the majority of casks which were saved came from the distillery's latter period. As the whisky had never been intentionally laid down for extra-aginged iterations, the fact that there were some casks left from the 1960s was nothing short of a miracle. That they were of high quality was even more of a pleasant surprise. This was old, old-style Japanese whisky, of a character that would never be seen again. It is what you now have in front of you," David Broom

    「無疑大部份存酒來自後期的酒廠;由於威士忌從未故意横放以追求更深一層的熟成,有些從1960年代留下的桶酒可說是個奇蹟,品質高,更是怡人的驚喜。這是陳釀,老式的日本威士忌,如此品質再難復見,而此刻就在你眼前。」David Broom評說。
