Japanese Whisky

In recent years Japanese whisky has become increasingly popular. Winning Jim Murray's coveted Whisky of the Year award in 2015 and constantly ranking in the top 5 and 10, Japanese whisky is no longer the discarded cousin of Scotch whisky. With the likes of Suntory’s Yamazaki and Hibiki, Nikka’s Miyagikyo and Taketsuru and many others now offering complex and innovative flavours, Japanese Single Malt Whisky is a solid contender.

yamazakura-16yearold-whiskybuys.jpg
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
