Delve into the harmonious fusion of flavors in Asakura Sakura Cask Blend, an exceptional Japanese spirit artfully created by Shinozaki of Asakura City, Japan. This unique blend entices you to savor a symphony of tastes and aromas that elegantly capture the grace and charm of Sakura. Crafted from barley using koji and distilled twice in a pot still, the shochu is aged for a minimum of 6 years in American oak, further matured in “sakura” barrels.
Created from pure barley shochu and enriched with dietary fiber, this spirit captures the subtle hues of sakura, presenting a delicate pink tint reminiscent of fully blossomed cherry petals. As you draw near to the glass, you’re greeted by a refreshing herbal scent, akin to a minty breeze intermingled with a sweet and understated malt aroma. It strikes a perfect balance between sweetness and seasoning, offering a distinct departure from grassy notes. The aroma gracefully unfolds in your mouth, offering a delightful aftertaste.
On the palate, you’ll discover a skillfully restrained grassy quality, allowing Asakura’s characteristic barley essence to take center stage. The finish is elegant and enduring, leaving you with a profound sense of the spirit’s complexity and the enchanting allure of Sakura.
