Togouchi Beer Cask Finish is a blended whisky specially created with only 36 casks blended together. For this edition, the casks selected for the final maturation by the Chief Blender of the Sakurao distillery are oak casks that were used first for the maturation of Martinique rum in the French Caribbean and then for the maturation of IPA beers in France.
Togouchi Beer Cask Finish is marked on the nose by the influence of the IPA beer transmitted during the maturation process with hints of hops, but also the honeyed rum flavors inherited from Martinique rum. In spite of its young age, it expresses in the mouth a beautiful complexity with aromas of baked apples, nuts and corn flakes all coated by a discreet peat. On the finish it disappears with sweetness leaving behind the sweetness of honey, the finesse of peat and a slight bitterness.
Togouchi whiskies are specific in that they are only aged, blended, diluted in Japan and highlight the work of blending for the future productions of the Sakurao distillery. The aging of whisky casks imported from Scotland and Canada takes place in a unique site: a tunnel 361m long and dug in 1970 offering ideal conditions for maturation (constant temperature of 14°C and humidity of 80%). Part of their Japanese character is transmitted by the terroir through the spring water used for the reduction of the alcoholic volume which is drawn from the heart of the preserved mountains of the Sandankyo natural park.

The brand Togouchi
Togouchi is a special player in the Japanese whisky market. Firstly because the whiskies that make up the range are a blend of Scottish malt whiskies and grain whiskies from Canada.
They are then blended in Japan and aged in an old railway tunnel where the constant temperature of 14°C allows an ideal maturation. This tunnel is located in the city of Togouchi, near Hiroshima, which is obviously where the name of these original whiskies comes from.
