EXPERIMENTAL GREEN TEA TRILOGY

Ambassador

  • DESCRIPTION
  • TASTING NOTES
  • CASKS

Kaizen is a trilogy about Swedish whisky and Japanese tea. A fusion of craftsmanship and passion from different continents.

The expressions have been aged in ex-bourbon casks saturated with exclusive Japanese tea – resulting in three complex whiskies with untraditional tasting notes. 

Kaizen 02: Limited to 2542 bottles. 

Nose: The nose is sweet with both fruit sweetness and vanilla. Apricot and mango harmonize with vanilla fudge. There is a certain sweet citrus present, as well as hints of pine resin and licorice.

Taste: The taste is fresher than the nose with more pronounced citrus and herbal notes, but the fruitiness and vanilla are still present. Slightly bitter tea and nut tones land deep in the taste.

Aftertaste: The aftertaste is crisp and medium-length with a mild tea character. A nutty undertone complements the distinct herbal tones nicely. Far into the finish, the tropical fruits make a comeback.

  • 90% Shinobi-saturated Ex-Bourbon casks, 200L (whisky stored since 2013)
  • 10% Ex-Bourbon cask, 200L from 2007

Kaizen 02 - Shinobi

Shinobi is a refreshing green tea from Japan characterized by its sweetness and vibrant notes.

A mild tea that has delicately married with the whisky, where the lively citrus tones and tropical fruits especially highlight the distillate in a subtle manner.

A sweet and fruity whisky with a tea-like notes in the finish


Exclusive Japanese Green Tea 

Mackmyra's tea infusions are unique. We have allowed various green teas to macerate in Oloroso, which, after straining, has been used to season casks.

The matured whisky dates back to 2013, and the tea cask finishing lasted for two years and nine months.

All releases in this mini-series are 'single tea,' a characteristic that is distinctly reflected in the widely diverse flavor profiles of each edition.
