Bainbridge Yama Mizunara Japanese Oak Cask American Single Grain Barley Whiskey (United States), 45% abv, $525.00, 750 ml

Highly Recommended

Tasting Note:

Pouring a gorgeous amber in the glass. The nose is incredible nuanced, gentle, yet sumptuous. Freshly crushed honeycrisp apple, sliced Asian pear, vanilla custard, and rose dance across a canvas of hinoki cypress, freshly hewn cherrywood and lightly browned, salted butter. A luscious texture that fills the palate with robust, balanced flavors with resounding accents of stone fruit, peach, apricot, tobacco, and black pepper.
