Yamazakura Japanese Blended Whisky
Yamazakura Japanese Blended Whisky is meticulously crafted by Sasanokawa Distillery in Japan.
Based in the city of Koriyama, Sasanokawa expanded into whisky in the 1940s. This represents a high-end complement to their entry level whisky range (‘Yama’ means ‘mountain’ and ‘Sakura’ means cherry tree, hence the beautiful label design).
This blend is composed of four malt whiskies and one grain whisky. Orange blossoms on the nose, followed by oak, caramel, and fresh orchard fruit on the palate including some subtle and delicious peat. Ideal in a highball.
