Sasanokawa Shuzo, Cherry Ex-whisky, 40%

Review #477
This is unaged cherry flavoured whisky mixed with whisky from Yamazakura. Sweet with red berries in the smell. You really have to search for the cherry notes. Maybe it is more about the flowers than the cherries itself.

A bit rough in the taste. You can sense the new make, but actually in a quite pleasant way. Again, you have to search for the cherry flavours. New make and berry sweetness lingers out in the finish.

Fun to try the mix of new make spirit and single malt. It is mild and sweet, yet rough. Not too complex though, but I guess it ain´t supposed to be. Well, fun to try something different. I will give this 76/100 (19/19/19/19).
