Thank you very much for your continued patronage of Azabu Juban BAR Shinkai.
Today we are pleased to announce the arrival of YUZA 2023, newly released from the Yusa distillery in Yamagata Prefecture.
The First and Second editions released last year were cask strength, but, this year’s edition is bottled at 51% alcohol by volume, with the addition of water to make it easier to drink straight.
Although the limited number of bottles has not been announced, it is expected that the number of bottles sold will be higher than for the First and Second editions, due to the fact that the bottling is adjusted for added water.
Clean, sweet & fruity.
「YUZA 2023」 is a single malt Japanese whisky that can be considered the ‘origin’ of the YUZA distillery’s house style.
The original spirit is carefully selected from those matured in bourbon casks and has a clean, fruity taste with a sweet, vanilla-like flavour.
Enjoy it as the “standard” of the Yusa distillery.
Fine, clean sake quality, smooth, refined and balanced.
