Fukano Vault Reserve 2
Fukano // Japan
Fukano Vault Reserve 2 was announced in November 2018 alongside three other limited edition expressions: Fukano Vault Reserve 1, Fukano 6000 and Fukano Jikan. All four limited edition expressions are a combination of whiskies between the ages of 3 and 11 years old. Some of the whisky was first matured in casks and then moved over to be kept in different tanks for up to 16 years to rest. After tasting each tank individually, the brand created four different combinations from the tanks. 3,850 bottles were produced globally and it is bottled at 40.4% ABV.
Other WhiskeyA spirit distilled from a mash of grain(s) at less than 95% ABV, bottled at no less than 40% ABV. The product must have characteristics, taste, and aroma generally attributed to whiskey
"The Fukano Vault Reserve 2 is fuller and more rounded than its #1 release, with a sweeter taste profile and a softer mouthfeel. On the palate expect notes of vanilla, cocoa, brown sugar, and bourbon. Despite this, it's still a fairly bright whiskey, with hints of orange peel. This bottling is well-suited for a winter release, with a richness and spice that fits colder weather."
