YUZA SECOND EDITION 2023
They follow the concept they call “TLAS” (Tiny, Lovely, Authentic, and Supreme). The distillery located in Yamagata is very small, looking tiny and pretty, and they aim for authentic and supreme whisky.
Making whisky requires good-quality cold water, clear air, and moderate moisture. Yuza is blessed with Mt. Chokai’s stream and fresh, clean air.
NOTES ON TASTE
Aroma: Exuberant, treacly, and juicy scents of Fuji apple, Shanghai peach, Claude Blanchet pear, and Kariya pears accompany the powerful opening notes of dried fruits on the nose.
Ambre, in appearance.
Palate: The palate is coated in a silky, creamy texture that reveals the richness of orchard fruits while maintaining a strong body and presence. A good kick is added by the sweet vanilla and a trace of peat.
Overall: The taste is smooth and fruity, beckoning you to take another drink.
