Yamazakura

A blended whisky from Japan’s Yamazakura range, which is brought to market by Japanese company Sasanokawa Shuzo. The name itself a portmanteau of two Japanese terms ‘Yama’ means ‘mountain’ and ‘Sakura’ means cherry tree. If you think about it, a portmanteau is kind of like a blend but with words, so this name is rather apt for a Japanese blended whisky.
