A gorgeous limited edition single malt Scotch whisky with a Japanese twist from the giants of Glenfiddich here. Grand Yozakura 29 Year Old is finished in Japanese awamori casks!
Awamori is a spirit produced in Okinawa from long-grain indica rice, which, like sake, is initially seeded with koji and fermented with yeasts that have been isolated from all sorts of funky locations, including mangoes, hibiscus, and sakura blossoms. It leads to some amazingly diverse flavour notes, ranging from floral and fruity, to rich and savoury, all of which have been imparted into this remarkable dram.
The bottle is housed in a smart case, adorned with sakura blossom, comes with a bespoke engraved stopper, and is topped with a cloth that carries a poem, all coming together to perfectly capture the moment.
A surge of ripe fruits and caramelised almonds fill the nose, before indulgent layers of toasted oak and creamy vanilla mingle with spice and sherbet, rippling on the tongue before a final crescendo of oak on the finish.
