About Yamazakura Asaka Single Malt Japanese Whisky
Founded in 1765, Sasanokawa Shuzo is a company with a rich history of spirit production. Located on the island of Honshu, their old distillery plant Asaka was reopened for the production of single malt whisky. It's the same site where Ichiro Akuto matured his Ichiro's Malt Card Series. The unpeated Yamazakura Asaka Single Malt Japanese Whisky is aged at least 3 years in ex-bourbon casks, the hot summers and cold winters working their magic on the liquid within. The smooth, gentle, and rich single malt is bottled at 100 proof and features notes of honey, citrus, vanilla, pepper, and floral notes.

About Japanese Whisky
Although maybe not be the first Spirit you would think of when Japan is mentioned; the Japanese make one of the best types of whisky in the world. It’s heavily influenced by scotch but with smoother and delicate notes.
The history of the Japanese whisky is not even a century old, but in this short time, the Japanese blended and single malts have taken over the world by storm and can easily go against their whisk(e)y counterparts from across the globe.
It's a gentle yet rich Japanese whisky with honey, citrus, and oak aromas on the nose. The palate is gently sweet with honey, vanilla, and lemon, as well as hints of ginger and floral notes. The finish has lingering honey, fruit, and gentle spice notes.
