Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whisky displays an opulent, full-bodied hue of rich mahogany, intertwined with delicate golden highlights. Its liquid form is dense, coating the sides of the glass with a languid viscosity that hints at its layered complexity.
The initial aroma is an intoxicating blend of ripe dark fruits, such as black cherries and figs, coupled with a matured scent of oak and leather. As it unfolds, nuances of sakura (cherry blossom) waft through, leaving behind the subtle richness of vanilla, dark chocolate, and a whiff of oriental spices.
Upon first sip, the whisky unfolds in a crescendo of flavors. The 29-year maturation process manifests itself in the form of well-rounded, mature tastes of dried fruit, oak, and a distinctive smoky undertone. The Yozakura cherry blossom finishing imparts a unique floral elegance, punctuated by gentle tones of sakura, umami, and a dash of matcha green tea, seamlessly blending the essence of two cultures.
The finish is long and luxurious, characterized by a medley of woody and floral notes that sustain in perfect harmony. It lingers on the palate with a velvety softness, leaving a satisfying warmth that is imbued with remnants of its cherry blossom heritage.
The mouthfeel is notably complex yet balanced, with a dense, creamy texture that elegantly offsets its high alcohol content. Each sip is a revelation, a testament to the whisky's age and the brilliance of its double-cask maturation.
