Japanese Single Malt Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 43%
An old bottle of the iconic Yamazaki 18-year-old Japanese single malt whisky. Yamazaki was Japan's first proper single malt whisky distillery, built in 1923 by the godfathers of Japanese whisky, Shinjiro Torii and Masataka Taketsuru.
Originally launched in Japan in 1992, Yamazaki 18-year-old arrived in Europe rather later, but stormed into Western whisky fans' consciousness with a plethora of major international whisky awards from the mid-Noughties onwards.
Believed to be around 80% sherry cask matured, with the remainder a mix of refill and Mizunara oak casks, Yamazaki 18-year-old's velvety texture and rich, aromatic aromas and flavours have entranced many whisky fans, building a global following for this magnificent Japanese malt whisky.
