Yamazakura 16 Year Old description
Yamazakura 16 Year Old is a very limited release from Japenese distillers Sasanokawa Shuzo. Composed of 20% malted barley and 80% corn, this expression is matured in Bourbon barrels for 16 years before being transferred to specific tanks and then finally finished in Bourbon casks for a few months.The nose is sweet and smooth with aspects of vanilla, cedar, fruitcake and citrus. The palate is fluid and subtle with notes of toast, coconut, fig, pear and a hint of liquorice. The finish is lingering and elegant with orange marmalade, sweet spices and woody elements revealed.
This very limited release takes its name from two Japanese symbols: "Yama" meaning mountain, and "Sakura" meaning cherry-trees, which adorn the bottle symbolising ephemeral beauty in a nod to the fleeting nature of this wonderful expression of which only 1992 bottles have been released.
