Taking it’s name from the faintest of the four stars that form the Southern Cross, our Imai single malt has been barreled in the finest of American Oak 100L barrels, originally used for bourbon whisky. The barrels were then filled with the sweetest whisky spirit from McHenry Distillery and left to age in traditional-style bond stores, before finishing in French Oak sherry barrels
Imai is sweet citrus on the nose. On the palate, gentle chocolate gives way to vanilla bean and tropical fruit, the mouth feel is velvety and smooth. Fruits from the Sherry barrel give it a rich dry finish.
