This single malt from the last years of production is at its natural strength. Below Meguro (Shimo­‐Meguro) was famous for the place where the shoguns hunted with a falcon. In the painting, the two falconers were standing on the pass­‐way and discussing the direction while the farmers were taking care of the fields.
