Shunka Shuto Japanese Blended Whisky is crafted at the Nirasaki Distillery in the Yamanashi Prefecture of Japan, each of the 4 expressions from the Blend of Four Seasons collection paying tribute to a different time of the year. Japan mostly has a temperate climate and its autumns are pleasantly gentle ― just like the Shunka Shuto Autumn expression. Aged in white oak and bottled at 80 proof, this luxurious blended whisky with a high malt ratio has a gentle sweetness to it with fruity and citrusy notes.
"Autumn in Japan has a comfortable climate, roughly the same as Spring. The heat breaks, the humidity goes down and the air feel cool and dry. Just as the cherry blossoms attract crowds in the Spring, many tourists gather in Nara prefecture, Kyoto prefecture, and Nikko city to enjoy the beautiful tints of Autumn. In Tokyo, November is the time when the leaves of deciduous trees turn red and yellow, painting the mountains and streets with beautiful colors. Autumn is also a time when many cultural events occur.
