A fascinating blended malt whisky from Taiwan. The whisky is named after Yushan, the highest mountain in Taiwan. The mountain is known for its staggering beauty, and is also called Mount Jade.
This spirit is produced at Nantou distillery, the state owned distillery on the island, more famous for producing Omar Single Malt.
This particular whisky has been aged in a mixture of former Bourbon barrels and ex-sherry casks. The maturation process has given the spirit a supple gentle nature, with notes of bright cereal sweetness, toffee, dried fruits, pineapples and mangos, and a rich clear honey flavour. Perfect balance is maintained throughout.
An excellent whisky, and a testament to the growing maturity of the Taiwanese whisky scene.
