Kamiki Sakura Wood Whisky 50cl
This is a Japanese triple cask finish whisky, with a deep, subtley different flavour profile
Kamiki Sakura Wood Whisky
The first whisky brand in the world which used the Japanese Sakura Tree and Cedar cask finish. It is also the first triple cask finish whisky in the world, and the first matured in Oak and aged for a second time in Cedar. The third aging is then in Sakura casks.
This whisky has a delightfully different nose, with notes of ripe banana and candied chestnuts. There's also cinnamon and a hint of pine. The nose develops further as you drink, and a distinct woodiness comes through which reminds of the forest.
It has a centre palate of woodniess, specifically sandalwood and a gentle spice. These develope into sweet cherry, which cuts through the savoury notes. The finish is floral, almost spring like.
