This whisky was announced in November 2018 alongside three other limited edition expressions: Fukano Vault Reserve 1, Fukano Vault Reserve 2 and Fukano 6000. All four limited edition expressions are a combination of whiskies between the ages of 3 and 11 years old. Some of the whisky was first matured in casks and then moved over to be kept in different tanks for up to 16 years to rest. After tasting each tank individually, the brand created four different combinations from the tanks. This release is meant to celebrate the history of Hitoyoshi, Japan. The label art was created by local artist Junishi Oda. 1,200 bottles were produced globally and it is bottled at 40.4% ABV.
