Founded in 2017 and inaugurated in 2018, Sakurao Distillery presents its first-ever single malt distilled, aged and blended in the Hiroshima region on the Seto Inland Sea.

After the weakly reduced limited edition, this 43% reduced version brings more roundness and balance to the blend, especially on the nose with fruity notes of grape, peach and orange. On the palate, the alcoholic strength being limited, the greediness takes all its place with vanilla aromas and a touch of tart apple, all wrapped in a silky texture. On the finish, we find a touch of smoke among the fruity notes.

Created by Taihei Yamamoto, the House’s Master Distiller, Sakurao Single Malt is a foretaste of the character of the young distillery’s future bottlings. Made from a combination of bourbon, new American oak and sherry casks, in which the whiskies were matured for three years, the final blend also benefited from several months of maturation in Mizunara casks, the famous Japanese oak.
