Yamazakura

Yamazakura is a blended whisky from Sasanokawa Shuzo. The distillery is now a well established structure, producing a large range of products including sake and shochu. Sasanokawa Shuzo more recently joined the whisky game, back in 1946, and quickly established a formidable reputation in the region that today sees them competing against Japan’s big whisky names.

This very limited release gets its name from two Japanese symbols; Yama is indeed the Japanese term for mountain, while Sakura refers to cherry-trees, symbolising ephemeral beauty. Matured in Bourbon barrels for 16 years, then transferred to specific tanks and finally back to Bourbon casks again to finish up for a few months. An inviting nose reveals notes of Vanilla, cedar, fruitcake and citrus, while the palate suggests toasted bread, coconut, fig and pear plus a hint of liquorice. Only 1992 bottles of this whisky are available for Europe, making this a highly collectable release. ABV: 40% 700ml
