This is the first single malt to be distilled entirely in Takaoka Copperware's new traditional cast iron "ZEMON" stills, which, thanks to the world's unique combination of copper and tin, give the whisky a remarkable smoothness and sophistication. Made from highly peated malted barley (50 ppm), then carefully aged in bourbon casks, Saburomaru II "The High Priestess" is neither colored nor chill-filtered, thus preserving all the authenticity of its aromas and its palette of flavors.
Let yourself be seduced by a full and elegant nose, revealing aromas of dry peat, toasted bread and passion fruit. You will also discover notes of charcoal, orange essential oil, apricot and a subtle mentholated freshness. In the mouth, this whisky is complex and balanced with a round and soft texture. Smoke blends harmoniously with flavors of pear, peat and malted cereals. You can also appreciate a delicate woody touch with hints of vanilla. The persistent finish is marked by notes of stewed fruit, peat and ash, offering a memorable conclusion to the tasting.
This third edition of the Saburomaru single malt series perfectly embodies the creativity, innocence, truth and mystery associated with the tarot card "The High Priestess". For this special bottle, a paper cutout depicting "The High Priestess" was created by paper cutter Yukie Kano, adding a unique artistic dimension to the label.
Overall, Saburomaru II "The High Priestess" is a young but graceful single malt with a strong, peaty personality.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.
