An authentic, yet delightfully innovative Japanese single malt whisky created by the renowned sake brewer Hakutsuru, who has brought over 270 years of craftmanship and tradition to create this unique expression. The result is an exquisite and well-rounded whisky, endlessly seductive as it reveals its many layers. It is aptly named after the graceful Tancho crane, Japanese symbol of good fortune. Distilled and matured in eastern Hokkaido, one of the hallowed grounds of whisky making in Japan, after more than three years in specially selected barrels, it is then finished in casks made of the rare Japanese Mizunara oak for its characteristically fresh, forest aromatics, reminiscent of the famed barrel-aged Taru sake.
Nose: Ripe cantaloupe, caramel and almonds
Palate: Mellow sweetness of banana, gentle waves of butterscotch and fresh herbal notes
Finish: Dark chocolate, orange, and pleasantly enduring smoky, peaty notes
