Iwai Tradition Natsu is a special summer release of the classic Iwai Tradition blend, but let to rest for an additional 6 months in umeshu barrels. The result is an addition of tea florality and a touch of maple and cinnamon spice on the nose. This whisky is an easy sipper, not too weighty on the palate and full of raisin and dried fruit.
