From the no longer functioning Hanyu distillery, this whisky has been aged in a "big butt". We're trying very hard not to snigger... But the label is very funny! The whisky, yes, right well this was bottled for Full Proof in Europe. All their bottles have some what.... suggestive... names but the whisky inside them is stellar.

Interestingly, this cask was split in two. The more keen eyed amongst you will have notice that this cask number appears in the Hanyu Noh Series, as half of the whisky was bottled by No 1 Drinks Company and released under this label. The other half was released by Full Proof, a mere 200 bottles. This is a full bodied example of Hanyu, rich and full of bold flavours. We know completionists will want both bottles, so this is a chance to get your hands on at least one!
