Amahagan WM No. 3 Mizunara Oak Finish 47% 700ml
Amahagan WM No. 3 Mizunara Oak Finish
Quercus crispula wood finish (Mizunara Oak), bitter malt with an oriental scent. The oriental personality of Quercus crispula, also known as "Japanese Oak" is native to Japan. After ripening, the oak imparts unique flavorsome notes unlike any other oak finish in the world. The appearance is pale amber. The sweet malt scent of Nagahama malt that overflows in the glass mixes with warm fruits such as oranges and red apples, making it more mellow. As time goes by, the nuances of the fragrant wood derived from Quercus crispula are further reduced and at the end it feels like a sweet caramel woody. The palate has an orange baked confectionery and fragrant brown sugar flavour. After the sweetness there is a rich finish that is like slowly melting bitter chocolate in the mouth.
