Here's something more than a little bit exciting - the oldest Japanese single malt released to date! The Saburomaru distillery has been distilling tiny amounts of malt whisky since the early 1950's - they peat all of their malt and this whisky was distilled all the way back in 1960 on a continuous "allospas" French still.

Even though this auspicious release was vatted from several casks, the number of bottles filled was still minuscule - a mere 155 vessels filled from ex-red wine barrels.

Distilled: May 1960

Bottled: 2016

Age: 55 Year Old

Cask Type: Red Wine

47% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 71 / 155

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
