Mizunara is a rare variety of oak from Japan used to create barrels mostly utilized for aging Japanese whiskies. To create Park Borderies Mizunara, we employ a unique barrel finish to a beautiful blend single cru cognac from the Tessendier family estate in the esteemed Borderies growing region. This cognac spends at least
four years in lightly toasted French oak, followed by six months in Mizunara oak casks. The Mizunara cask finish brings intensity and depth, conferring notes of vanilla, cocoa, and spice. These rich notes meld seamlessly with the lighter, floral character of the Borderies cognacs. Produced in limited editions due to the difficulty of obtaining Mizunara casks, this cognac will definitely appeal to the whiskey palate, but it will be collectors who want to add this gem to their collection.
Aroma & Tasting Notes:
Fresh apricot, fig and plum. Soft and round with fruit and spice notes of cinnamon and clove
