Founded in 1923 by Shinjiro Torii, Yamazaki is Japan's first bona fide whisky distillery. Sitting inbetween 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.
This single malt is the 2016 release from Yamazaki's annual Cask Collection. Aged solely in Sherry casks, this bottle does not have an age statement. Hugely popular and carrying many awards for previous releases, this addition is sure to be a big hit too.
