KAIZEN 03 - HOJICHA

Volume: 70 cl / Alc: 45,9% Vol

DESCRIPTION

Kaizen is a trilogy about Swedish whisky and Japanese tea. A fusion of craftsmanship and passion from different continents. The expressions have been aged in ex-bourbon casks saturated with exclusive Japanese tea – resulting in three complex whiskies with untraditional tasting notes.
Kaizen 03: Limited to 2101 bottles.

TASTING NOTES

Nose: The nose is sweet with both fruit sweetness and vanilla. Apricot and mango harmonize with vanilla fudge. There is a certain sweet citrus present, as well as hints of pine resin and licorice.

Taste: The taste is fresher than the nose with more pronounced citrus and herbal notes, but the fruitiness and vanilla are still present. Slightly bitter tea and nut tones land deep in the taste.

Aftertaste: The aftertaste is crisp and medium-length with a mild tea character. A nutty undertone complements the distinct herbal tones nicely. Far into the finish, the tropical fruits make a comeback.

CASKS
