yamazaki umeshu 2020

New Limited Yamazaki Umeshus Now in Store

Matured in whisky casks, “Yamazaki Distillery Umeshu” has been long popular for its complexity and perfect balance of sweetness. Good news is, this year, Yamazaki Distillery has released two new limited umeshus. One is blended with malt whisky while another is matured in hogsheads that was used for the production of peated whisky. The latter is only released once a year and, when hitting the market last year, was sold out quickly with the retail price even marked up twice to triple in Japan. Outstanding with only limited stock, they are definitely your must-try drinks!
Remarks: Hurry while stocks last. Each order only accepts 2 bottles for each item.

    Smoky Umeshu

    Matured in old hogsheads that was used for the production of peated whisky, this umeshu is delicately smoky, mildly sweet and complex with the hints of salt and a tingling finish. As the barrels of peated whisky just account for less than 1% of production of casks, they are extremely rare. Especially recommended to those who like smoky whisky.
