Suntory Essence 2020 Sakura Cask Finish Blend (500ml)

The Essence of Suntory Whisky - Volume 4

Chita Distillery, Sakura Cask Finish Blend

One of two bottles that make up the new Essence of Suntory Volume 4: Sakura and Rice release, this single grain whisky was distilled at the Chita Distillery in 2000 before being aged in white oak barrels for approximately 15 years. But, it’s journey didn’t end there. It was then transferred to Sakura casks (cherry blossom wood) for a three year finishing period. The Sakura wood has had a profound and elegant effect on the whisky.  

It brings cherries, mochi and whiffs of Sakura flowers on the nose, before lychee, white grapes and sweet honey dance on the palate. The scent of cherry blossom returns on the finish and lingers for a long time, while gentle wasabi spice hangs around in the background. All of this is delivered with a smoothness only found in the most carefully crafted expressions, making this a truly accomplished single grain whisky.
