This is one of Suntory's two Distiller's Reserve single malt whiskies, released in Spring 2014. This Yamazaki single malt is jam-packed with wonderful red cherry flavours, thanks to the whisky's maturation in Bordeaux wine casks and Sherry casks. It also includes malt that has been aged in Mizunara casks, which adds mild aromatic oak aromas.
|Bottle Size||700 ml|
Nose: Strawberry and dried fruits are classic Yamazaki flavours, with flowery nuances from the Mizunara cask whisky. Sandalwood and possibly coconut scents. Definitely a whisky where you can lose yourself in its nose.
Palate: On the palate, the dried berries are still present (there are even some raspberry flavours), but they've been toned down to make room for light oak, white peach, and a hint of spice.
Finish: Vanilla lingers for a long time, with a final flash of spicy but sweet cinnamon.
|Special Ingredients||Toffee, Cinnamon, Almond, and Clove|
