Fuyu Blended Japanese Whisky Mizunara Finish Japan
Fuyu Mizunara is a three-year-old blend made up of 50% malt and 50% grain. This whisky is matured in American white oak barrels, with a six-month finishing period in Mizunara barrels. Mizunara means ‘water and oak’, and what makes it special is the fact that it contains lots of naturally high moisture and its incredibly permeability that produce the aromas that are so unique to Japanese whiskies matured in Mizunara barrels.
Nose: Caramel, vanilla and honey to start. Plum wine. Creamed wheat. Lemon candies. Soft floral components. Signs of Mizunara oak.
Palate: Mix of sweet and sour in the mouth. Certainly not as sweet as I expected from the nose. Prunes and green grapes.Creamed wheat again. Ginger. Nutmeg.
Finish: Medium. Light corn syrup notes. Buttery on the finish.
