This time they've finished it in 'Sakura Casks', which sounds Japanese enough. Indeed, it is cherry wood, coopering cherry wood must be a chore! Colour: pale white wine. Nose: frankly, it's not that different. Perhaps a tad less fermentary and a notch more acetic? I like it just as much. Frankly, not my business but isn't it a little strange that their whiskies bearing the name of their Distillery, so Kurayoshi, would be world blends, while the ones that don't, such as these Matsuis, would be properly Japanese? Mouth: once again we're very close to the mizunara, but let's remember that both are only finishings. Having said that, this Sakura tends to show a little more coffee, caramel… It's probably less complex that the mizunara. Finish: same. Comments: this very good baby's main asset, in my opinion, is that it would make the impct of the mizunara in the previous one stand out by comparison.
