Yamazakura Sakura Cask Finish Pure Malt Whisky


Region: Japan / World

Distillery: Yamazakura (Sasanokawa Shuzo)/World

Age: About 7 Years

ABV: 47%

Size: 700 ml

Matured in bourbon barrels for about 6 years and a further finishing in Sakura (Cherry Blossom Tree) Casks for about 1 year, only 300 bottles were released. Their own distillation has also gone through turbulent times in sync with the Japanese whisky market's boom and bust cycles with bulk spirit imports replacing their own production through these times. With a beautiful light golden hue and an exquisite balance of fresh tropical fruits, citrus, green apples and floral sweetness, honey wax, there is a certain earthiness which gives way to a hint of saltiness and spices at the back. Did remind us of Sakura Mochi as we were sipping on this whisky! A rare bottling given the time spent in Sakura Casks.

在波本酒桶中熟成大約6年,然後在櫻花木桶中再熟成大約1年,限量300瓶。 新鮮熱帶水果,柑橘,青蘋果和花香的甜味以及蜂蜜蠟的平衡,少許泥土味,讓其在後面散發出一絲鹹味和香料。 當我們品嚐威士忌時,確實讓我們想起了櫻花年糕!
