Following the presentation of its first single malt in 2019, the Asaka distillery founded in 2016 in the Fukushima region, unveils a limited edition single cask of its Yamazakura whisky for France.

Its sweet yet complex profile is expressed on the nose with notes of yellow fruit, honey and vanilla, which are still present on the palate during tasting but are joined by aromas of candied orange and brioche. On the finish, this single cask gradually disappears leaving notes of malted cereals and dried fruits.

Bottled exclusively from a single bourbon cask in which the whisky has rested for 3 years, Yamazakura Single Cask is the emblematic single malt of the Asaka distillery. Neither colored nor chill-filtered, this limited edition offers a glimpse of the Master Blender's signature that will be proudly represented in future bottlings of the House.

Product limited to 2 bottles per order.
