Price: $160 ● Issue: Spring 2023 ● Reviewer: Jonny McCormick
Floral sweetness, fresh fruits, candied orange, pomegranate, potpourri, grapefruit zest, raspberry taffy, and exotic woody base notes make this limited-edition sakura cask expression stand out as something rather special. It's very smooth to sip, with floral honey, citrus, cooking apple, grapefruit, sour cherry, gentle wood spices, and notes of mizunara oak. The fruity sweetness slowly dries on the palate, with notes of dried citrus and mizunara on the finish.
