Yamazakura Sakura Cask Finish Pure Malt Whisky


Region: Japan

Distillery: Yamazakura (Sasanokawa Shuzo)

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. 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!
