Yamazakura Asaka 2023 reveals a complex, delicate nose, with nuances of plum, wildflower honey and bourbon vanilla. Fruity and sweet aromas blend harmoniously, creating a seductive olfactory experience. On the palate, it reveals a velvety, gourmand texture, with pronounced notes of orange marmalade, vanilla and French toast. Flavors blend with subtlety, creating a complex, balanced palette. The finish is smooth and persistent, leaving rich, slightly spicy cereal notes and hints of candied fruit on the palate, a warm conclusion that prolongs the pleasure of tasting.

This single malt is made from malted barley, then distilled twice in a traditional Pot Still, bringing out the distinctive flavors and characteristics of the Asaka distillery. After distillation, the whisky was aged for 3 years in bourbon casks, adding complexity and depth to its flavor profile. Unchill-filtered, it retains all its authenticity and natural texture, offering a pure, intense tasting experience.

This limited edition of Yamazakura Asaka 2023 has been specially bottled for France, and produced in small quantities from a careful selection of 10 Bourbon casks, resulting in just 3,000 bottles.

Product limited to 2 bottles per order.
