Nagahama Distillery was founded in 2016 and is the smallest distillery in Japan. It is located on the shore of Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan. This is also called "Mother Lake". The amount of water of the lake moderates the climate, which is very good for the maturation of the whiskey. The blended whiskies Amahagan have their name directly from the distillery Nagahama. Because the word "Nagahama" means "Amahagan" upside down. The Amahagan World Malt Whisky Edition No.3 is the third blended whisky in this series. The carefully selected whiskies, sourced from overseas, are blended with fine Nagahama Newmake and matured in the Far Eastern climate. The sharp difference in temperature creates a special type of maturation. This is why the series is called World Malts. The production takes place in smallest boilers of Japan. Distilling is done in a still called "aranbic", which follows an Arabic look. This whiskey receives a Mizunara finish at the end. Tasting notes:Colour: Light gold.
