YAMAZAKI Mizunara 18 ans 100th Anniversary Edition 48,6%
This Yamazaki 18 Year Old Mizunara Single Malt is made from meticulously selected malt whiskeys, all aged for a minimum of 18 years in Mizunara casks. The resulting blend showcases the rare and distinctive beauty of Mizunara oak, which is considered Yamazaki's signature "raiser", bringing character and elegance unique to Japan. As a tribute to its namesake, it is made at Japan's first and oldest malt distillery, founded in 1923 by Shinjiro Torii. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding house of Japanese whiskey, we recall a whiskey created to suit the delicate palate of the Japanese.
Nose: Rich and elegant notes of black cherry and ripe peach, hints of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Palate: Subtly spicy with notes of Japanese incense.
Finish: Long and persistent, notes of clove, sandalwood and dried coconut.
The exclusive release of Yamazaki 18 Year Old Mizunaraen 2023 showcases the unique essence of Yamazaki by combining Maison Suntory's signature single malt with the irreplaceable aging effect and sought-after characteristics of Japanese oak Mizunara, in which this unique malt was exclusively aged. Maison Suntory discovered and began experimenting with Mizunara wood as early as the 1940s, under the supervision of first-generation Master Blender ShinjiroTorii and second-generation Master Blender Keizo Saji. This commitment to crafting whiskeys aged in Mizunara wood paved the way for future experiments.
