Description

Yamazakura whisky is made at the Asaka distillery, owned by Sasanokawa Shuzo Co. This is the newest addition to the company’s ever-popular series, the Yamazakura Pure Malt Mountain Cherry edition. A mild, drinkable expression, featuring notes of cherry, oak, and earth. Witness the craft of Japan’s ji-whisky producers.

A pure malt whiskey that is vatted from sherry barrel malt and peat malt aged over 5 years in oak barrels. You can enjoy a rich flavour of malt and a soft fruit incense from sherry barrels, a sweet smooth mouth feel with smoky flavour.

Our tip. Bypass your Yamazaki Hibiki or Hakushu and try this one out.
