Saburomaru The Magician is the second edition of the single malt presented by the small craft distillery since its reconstruction in 2017. The evolution of its single malt is declined through a series representing the cards of the tarot deck.
After the Fool, it is the magician's turn to enter the dance to symbolize the new journey or the beginning of the adventure. For this new edition, the aromatic profile is more balanced and greedy with vanilla, bitter orange and peat notes. During the tasting, aromas of malted barley, oak and green apple are added, which persist in a perfect balance despite the power of the peat.
Neither colored nor chill-filtered, Saburomaru The Magician has a peat level of 53 ppm and clearly expresses the distillery's desire to produce a single malt with a peaty character. For this second small batch, the blend consists solely of whiskies distilled in 2018 and aged for 3 years in bourbon casks.
The Magician is a transitional edition accompanying the modernization of the facilities with, unlike The Fool, the use for fermentation of the new mashtuns installed in 2018. The old stills used for the distillation of these first 2 editions have been retired in 2019 to make way for brand new stills made in Japan by a specialist in Buddhist bell casting.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.
