Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : irisée soutenue.
  • Nose : onctueux. Des agrumes (oranges amères), du tabac frais, de la sauge, de la cardamome et des notes de levain sont suggérés par le premier nez au tempérament altier. Puis, il nous emmène en forêt respirer l’odeur des sous-bois (lichen, truffe). Il se prolonge sur les agrumes confits (citron, pamplemousse) et la poire Williams.
  • Palate : chaleureuse, riche. Rythmée par des notes d’amandes, de noix grillées, de gingembre, de résine de pin et de brindilles séchées, elle est particulièrement capiteuse. Au fur et à mesure, elle gagne en fraîcheur et propose des fruits rouges (framboise, fraise) et des abricots juteux.
  • Overall : longue, affirmée. Des épices nobles sont tout d’abord mises en avant (muscade, cumin, safran). Elle évolue sur des notes de raisins blancs et de fruits exotiques (litchi, kaki). Sa texture est très soyeuse. La rétro olfaction est finement beurrée et vanillée, elle évoque en cela un gâteau de riz. Le verre vide dévoile des notes de coriandre fraîche, de racine de gentiane et de badiane.
The brand

The brand

Created specially for La Maison du Whisky in 2010, Artisan is a range of junmai ginjo and junmai dai-ginjo nihonshu sake. Produced by Banjo Jozo, these authentic Japanese sakes are extremely pure, with no added water or alcohol. These top of the range artisanal sakes are the equivalent of French Grand Crus. They are brewed from organic rice, natural yeasts and solid koji. With a perfectly balanced alcohol content (14.8% for the 55 and the 50; 16% for the 40), they boast wonderfully rich flavours and a delightful soft sensation in the mouth. The Artisan brand, with its natural products, represents passion, expertise and respect for the tradition of its creator.

The distillery

Founded in 1647, the Banjo Jozo brewery underwent a full renovation 20 years ago. Disappointed by the state of nihonshu production at the time, Kuno Kuheiji created the Kuheiji brand, limiting himself to the production of junmai in the ginjo category or above. In order to guarantee the quality of his products, and to demonstrate the degree to which the making of good nihonshu depends in the quality of the ingredients, he continued his studies of different varieties of yeast, koji and rice. Kuno-san was convinced that only the oldest varieties, and thus the most stable and most natural, would guarantee a high quality, natural and stable product. These are rich, complex products with tremendous character that are sure to please fans of natural wines. The Artisan brand, produced by Banjo Jozo, was created especially for LMDW.

Merchant

Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.
