It's the fall season in Kyoto and winter is fast approaching. That means it's the season for enjoying umeshu, also known as Japanese plum wine! Umeshu is a Japanese liqueur made by infusing a spirit with Japanese ume plums. However, Suntory has taken umeshu to a whole new level with this premium product. They have aged this umeshu in toasted oak casks at the Yamazaki distillery - home of the internationally award-winning Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky!
From the box:
This Plum liqueur is aged in toasted oak whisky casks and is mixed with whisky that has been matured in plum liqueur casks to produce a full-bodied plum liqueur. Enjoy the fragrant aromas and a rich depth of taste imparted by toasted oak casks, together with a soft, lingering aftertaste.
See you soon,
