Togouchi Sake Cask Finish Japanese Whisky 40% 700ml
In the oak casks used for aging white wines in Japanese wineries, we matured Sake (junmai-shu) brewed by us and then used the Sake Cask to wood finish for Togouchi whisky. With a light fruit scent and a moderate acidity derived from white wine and Sake, a sweetness like brown sugar derived from the wood finish, the harmony of sweet taste with the mellow fruity aroma is enjoyable.
Colour: Golden colour
Nose: Ester, Fruity
Palate: Mellow brown sugar sweetness, moderate acidity.
Finish: Mellow with moderate acidity and sweetness.
