A gentle blended whisky from Sasanokawa Shuzo. Light straw gold in color, very subtle nose and a gentle sweetness, easy, light mouthfeel and a simple finish. A perfect, daily dram in a highball, this blend also includes some aged pot still distillate.

The Cherry/Cherry-Ex brand has been one of the earliest blended whisky releases of Sasanokawa Shuzo, since obtaining a license to produce whisky in 1946. Their own distillation has also gone through turbulent times in sync with the Japanese whisky market's boom and bust cycles.
