Amahagan Yamazakura Wood Finish Edition N°4 70cl 47°
Fourth edition of the Blended Malt series, this Amahagan is the result of the blending of single malts from the distillery and single malts from abroad, carefully selected.
This expression is refined in Yamazakura wood casks instead of the traditional oak cask, which gives it a soft profile and fully inspired by Japan because marked by cherry blossoms and plum.
Founded in 2016, Nagahama is considered the smallest distillery in Japan.
It also uses one of the smallest stills in the country for its distillation process, called “aranbic” in reference to its characteristic shape reminiscent of Arab architecture.
Based on the shores of Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture, the distillery produces Japanese Single Malts and also carefully selects whiskies produced all over the world to create perfectly mastered Blends.
For its production, Nagahama benefits from mineral-rich water during the snowmelt of Mount Ibuki, located just behind the distillery.
