Matsui “Sakura Cask” Single Malt Japanese Whisky (48% abv)

$129.99 $99.99

Matured in the wood of the cherry tree, this does impart a spicier than normal intensity, which in itself closes out the barley. Just drips with personality.    Jim Murray’s Whisky bible, 92.5 points

The Matsui Sakura Cask, Double distilled in pot stills then aged in Sakura oak cask, the famous and iconic Japanese cherry tree. This tree holds an important place in Japanese culture. Often used as a metaphor on ephemerality of beauty and life. It always has been a source of inspiration for Japanese artists.

Description

“Beauty in the Cherry blossom Garden” The artist, Kikukawa Eizan, portrayed Japanese women of strength and grace in his ukiyo-e masterpiece, which we believe was a great fit for the sakura cask which also possesses an underlying strength of flavor and a sweet aroma.

A single malt from the Kurayoshi Distillery, which resides in the foothills of Mt. Daisen. Released as part of the Matsui range, this particular expression has been matured in cherry wood casks – sounds rather intriguing indeed, doesn’t it?
