The 24 Japanese Sekki are days that divide the solar year into 24 equal micro seasons. Shosho, roughly translated as “summer fades,” begins around August 23 and marks when the heat begins to taper and the evening temperatures cool.
Awarded World’s Best Blended Whisky at 2022 World Whiskies Awards. Aromas of butter fudge, marmalade, malt and gentle smoke. The palate has notes of persimmon and candy corn with a supporting note of sandalwood that ends in a long finish reminiscent of fresh waffles. This whisky definitely embodies that space in between when the days shorten and cool, treasuring those last days as summer fades.
