Founded in 1923 by Shinjiro Torii, Yamazaki is Japan's first bona fide whisky distillery. Sitting in between Osaka and Kyoto the stills are varied in shape, size, lyne arm position and some are direct fired while others are steam heated. All of which allows for a creation of many different styles of spirit destined for blending as well as bottling as single malt.
Released as part of the annual Cask Collection from Yamazaki, this whisky has not been aged in the usual Hogshead or Sherry Butt, but in a Puncheon. This means that the wood has had less influence on the whisky, which allows a slower and more gentle maturation.
48% ABV / 70cl
