Region: Japan

Distillery: Yamazaki

ABV: 48%

Size: 700ml

This Yamazaki single malt is one of Yamazaki 2020 limited edition series released in Nov. 2020. The Puncheon Casks,  coopered by Suntory are larger than the usual ex-bourbon barrels sized at 480 litres and made of high quality American oak. Due to the larger size and hence low contact ratio of puncheons, the maturation is slower and brings about a complexity and richness which highlights the true flavours of the spirit itself. Color: Pale Gold Nose: Green apple, vanilla, acacia honey Palate: Mellow and mild with butterscotch Finish: Oaky woodiness and subtle sweetness.
