No store at this point

A very special bottling made first time ever to a private investor who also managed to export it from Japan! There is no export normally, Eigashima has only been for the Japanese market.

Dont expect to find these bottles at any auction or retailer though…

Eigashima 2005, 5 Years, 10.0 out of 10 based on 1 rating

Same fat, oily and "syrupy" texture as the 97-bottling. You can find this among Yoichi bottlings often. The funny thing with this one is that the barley is not peated at all but the first sip hits you like a horse kick with a sharp peppery smokiness. Funny huh? Its wild and not gently as the older sherry lady. Lots of smoke here, sharp wood, jalapeno peppers, apple, ripe sherries and nuts. Im confused by it but its incredible  for an 5yo. malt. I think i like this even more then the 97-bottling! Superb!
