This 963 bottle from Yamazakura, Sasanokawa Shuzo, was very recently released for the Japanese market, with only a limited number of bottles available. The Red label edition is lighter and smoother than the Black label edition, with fruity, sweet notes balancing the dram out beautifully. If you’re looking for a new, exciting Japanese whisky to try, the Yamazakura 963 is a must!
*This particular bottling was produced prior to the introduction of Japanese whisky labeling standards in February 2021.*
