Finally an affordable and quality Japanese whisky. Enter the Yamazakura. Hailing from the north of Japan, Morioka, Sasanokawa shuzo has been making whisky for many years. We have 2 of them. The Pure Malt which is a quality aged whisky (how long for we don’t know but at least 5 YO we are guessing), and the Blended Whisky Yamazakura Black Label which although a blend using some ‘world’ sake (ie not Japanese) the end result is quite nice especially considering the price.
Is it Yamazaki? Is it Hibiki? Hell no. Is it affordable? Is it good tasting. Yes. At least we think so. Try it and see for yourself.
