NEPAL'S FIRST SINGLE BARREL MALT WHISKEY
“J” is a De-code for a batch of rare Irish oak casks that was handcrafted immaculately in the year 1989. These two-decade old barrels are the same in which the malt of J89 has been mellowed and matured, giving it its woody aroma.
The peaty taste simulates the subtle lapsang souchong and the triple distillation ensures every drop is exceptionally smooth.
This vintage malted Whiskey of the single malt class is married with natural waters extracted from pockets 155 meters deep beneath the midhills of Nepal.
It is this attention to the finer details, along with Nepal’s conducive geography, and the skilled craftsmanship going into every bottle that instills the exquisite quality of J89.
