Amahagan Yamazakura Wood Limited Edition is the fourth whisky produced by Nagahama Distillery, and the last in the World Malts series of blends of new malts distilled on site in Japan with whiskies from malts imported from abroad.
Based on Blended Malt No. 1, this blended malt presents a glimpse of the future character of the young distillery's whiskies by highlighting the blending work of the Master Blender. This first series of whisky has been named Amahagan in homage to the name of the Nagahama distillery read from right to left.
Matured in Japanese cherry (Yamazakura) casks to emphasize the influence of different cask types during aging, Amahagan Yamazakura Wood Limited Edition expresses a rich, fruity profile with notes of cherry blossom, green tea, fruity plum notes, and gourmet orange cake notes.
Housed in the Roman Beer Brewery on the shores of Lake Biwa, Nagahama is Japan's smallest distillery and is among Japan's emerging distilleries. Inaugurated in 2016, it is equipped with the smallest stills in the archipelago whose atypical shape is reminiscent of Arab constructions from which they get their nickname "aranbics".
Product limited to 2 bottles per order.
