About this deal

Inspired by traditional Scotch whisky he sought to craft a Japanese version of this great spirit that captured the climate and terrain of his native country, whilst drawing on Scottish know-how. Torii started his career at a pharmaceutical wholesaler, which also distilled western alcoholic beverages. The reinvigorated tasting lounge, on the other hand, is encircled by a vast array of original bottles.

We take great pride in our innovative craftsmanship and the large variety of malt whiskies produced at Yamazaki Distillery, a rarity in the world of whiskies,” he says.

Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky - Distiller’s Reserve Nice bottle and box when i opened it up and 43% very good.

Found it better over ice than on its own and really nice as a long drink with lemonade and ice very easy drinking whisky can tell its been matured in oak barrel to give it a great flavour. Suntory’s renowned Yamazaki Distillery has long been a pioneering force in Japanese whisky, but its story has only just begun.For international tourists, rest assured that both tours are available with English-speaking guides.

Three sources of oak are used to mature this blend of single malts, old red Bordeaux barriques, ex-sherry butts and native Mizunara casks. It could be young wood, or it could be some crafting since laws in Japan haven’t defined or legally regulated their terms for a malt [this recently changed as of April 2021 – although it still allows distillers to include other cereal grains in “ Japanese whisky“].Despite being the first authentic Japanese whisky, the product was not well received in its home market due to a consumer taste for more subtle flavours than those in traditional Scotch whiskies. Enjoy the rich aroma of vanilla and the mellow, lingering aftertaste that arises from the toasted casks.
