The second bottling from the Nature of Shinshu series produced by the eponymous Japanese distillery. The Kohiganzakura honours the cherry blossom prevalent in Japan (and around the distillery itself, in particular!). It’s a lightly peated expression, with parts of it matured in casks that previously matured Japanese wine.
The third release in the Nature of Shinshu range from Mars Shinshu is the Shinanotanpopo single malt Japanese whisky, which was made by combining a well-aged whisky from their warehouses with a much younger whisky. “Shinanotanpopo”, for those curious, means “dandelion flower”.
