Rich Type Blended Japanese Whisky 2019 50cl / The Essence of Suntory

Suntory are one of the founding fathers of Japanese whisky, established by Shinjirō Torii in 1899 as a wine store in Osaka. The venture was hugely successful, and the company was renamed Kotobukiya in 1921, which built its first distillery three years later, Yamazaki. The distillery produced both malt and grain whiskies which the company blended together, releasing its first Suntory White Label in 1929, the resulting popularity of which saw the firm renamed after it 1963. Expansion in the next decade saw the company move its grain production to a new Chita distillery in 1972, and open a second malt distillery, Hakushu, the following year. Suntory today has a large stake in both the bourbon and Scotch whisky industry, but remains at the forefront of its native whisky market too.

Released at the end of 2019, this is from Volume 3 in the Essence of Suntory range of whiskies. 

A blend featuring malt whiskies from the Yamazaki distillery which have been aged for at least 12 years in white oak, followed by a second maturation of six or more years in Japanese cedar casks. These whiskies have been blended with Yamazaki malt whiskies aged for 18 years or longer in sherry and Mizunara casks, as well as Chita grain whiskies aged too for at least 18 years.
