Suntory Yamazaki Mizunara
70cl / 48%
18 Year Old 2017 Edition
- Japanese Single Malt Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
An incredibly rare and sought-after release from pioneering Japanese distiller Yamazaki. Created by master blender Shinji Fukuyo using Yamazaki’s decades of experience with mizunara – Japanese oak – and whiskies from 18 to 50 years of age, this very limited release showcases the wood’s unique effect on maturing spirit. Layers of exotic spices and incense notes mingle with fruit: a masterclass in Japanese whisky.
“I wanted to reveal the whisky’s soul that is the Art of Mizunara — a heightened sense and awakened palate engaged through aromas and flavors never known before. Encountering it should be a moment of epiphany.”. Shinji Fukuyo, Chief Blender, Suntory
