product Details

Yamazaki 16 Year Old SMWS 119.12

'Chewy and cheek-sucking'

Suntory’s flagship distillery, Yamazaki was founded by Shinjiro Torii in 1923. The town of Yamazaki was chosen to be the site of Japan’s first commercial distillery due to its very ‘Scottish’ climate, and with it being an area where three rivers converge. In its early days, Yamazaki produced both malt and grain for Suntory's blends, but the opening of the Chita distillery in 1972 allowed the company to focus on its single malt brand. It is now one of the world's most desirable. The first spirit ran from the stills in 1924, on 11th November at 11:11am.

A single cask offering from Suntory's Yamazaki distillery, matured for 16 years bottled from a mizunara oak cask by the Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

One of 262 bottles.
