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.

Knowledge Bar

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.
