Chita Sakura Cask Finish Blend 2020 50cl / The Essence of Suntory
The Chita grain distillery was opened in 1972, and was Suntory’s second distillery. Previously its malt and grain had been produced at Yamazaki, but Chita was tasked with sole responsibility for the latter during the company’s expansions that decade, which saw its second malt distillery, Hakushu, opened the following year. Although it is primarily tasked with the provision of Suntory blends, The Chita single grain brand was launched in 2015.
This is a 2020 addition to The Essence of Suntory Whisky series. A blend of 2000 vintage "clean type" Chita single grain, it has been finished in Sakura wood casks for its final three years. The previous fifteen were in white oak.
