Fuji Sanroku was launched in 2016, this unusually high ABV whisky from Japan includes medium and heavy grain whiskies, and a small peated element. It is also (uniquely) non-chill filtered.
The name Fuji Sanroku translates as ‘at the foot of Mt. Fuji’ because the distillery is at the foot of Mt. Fuji – Japan’s sacred mountain.
This Kirin Fuji Sanroku is perfect for collectors, as well as those who want to try out something new. Their whisky is rich, deep, fruity and somewhat creamy. We highly recommend that you try.
Nose: Cherry and almond cake, oak-y peat smoke, thyme honey.
Palate: Chocolate-coated biscuits, pink lemonade, a touch of brown sugar.
Finish: Grassy notes appear on the finish, alongside continued caramel-y sweetness.
What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Fuji Sanroku
Quote 1 “Very expressive whiskey. Smooth but full of character. No harsh flavors, but wonderfully boisterous and bright. Alcohol content is 50%, so the alcohol nose is quite prevalent. Don’t let that fool you – lots of depth to explore after the alcohol fumes dissipate.”
Quote 2 “I bought a bottle when I was in Japan a year ago. I like it a lot. I didn’t plan to buy it, the one I wanted to buy was out of stock.”
Quote 3 “Picked up a bottle in Asia at a very affordable price, and I got a big bang for my buck. I detect toffee notes in the nose and an almost spicy feel on the palate…and of course a mellow burn finish as it’s 100 proof. It was a random purchase and I’m happy with it.”
