Yamazaki and Hakushu Bourbon Barrel 2009 First Release Set Japanese Single Malt Whisky

Age: NAS, 48%

ABV: 48%, 48%

These Yamazaki and Hakushu whisky are aged entirely in handcrafted 180L bourbon barrels. Both are the First Release bottlings from 2009. The set allows for a great comparison between the two Japanese Single Malts from Suntory aged in similar barrels from perhaps similar vintages (though exact distillation date of the vatted malts is not known). Boxes have some normal wear and tear given the release date.
