Yamazaki 18 Year Old Mizunara Oak 2017 Edition
An 18 year old single malt from the oldest whisky distillery in Japan. In order to create the expression, Suntory’s chief blender Shinji Fukuyo tasted hundreds of mizunara-matured whiskies and selected casks with varying ages.
Mizunara oak is incredibly rare, and notoriously difficult to create casks from. However, the wood can contribute a fascinating combination of characteristics to the spirit, imparting a 'dignified oriental flavour' with this expression featuring notes of coconut and orange marmalade.
