A vatting of 6 Hanyu vintages (ranging from 1985-2000) from 7 types of cask. It's a legendary bottling, if only because it sold out so fast. I'm lucky to be able to taste this. It's awesome! Fruity and spicy, excellent mouthfeel neat, really drinkable. With a touch of water, it opens up beautifully, lots of dried fruit, sweeter, fragrant, some old leather at the finish. I'm still tasting this hours later.


I like this a lot.
