Yamazaki Distiller’s Reserve Whisky
Released in spring 2014, Yamazaki Distiller’s Reserve Whisky is a blend of no-age malts, among which we find malts aged in mizunara. The final blend is aged in ex-Sherry and ex-Bordeaux barrels, from which it draws the typical sweet and fruity notes.
The nose has hints of strawberry, cherry and mizunara (Japanese oak). On the palate: raspberry, white peach and a hint
coconut. The finish is clean with a touch of cinnamon.
Suntory Whisky embodies the harmony that exists between Japanese nature and the Japanese people. This unique fusion makes Suntory Whisky an art form.

Establishing the quality of these whiskies is the transparency of the waterways and the distinctive climate of the four seasons: the flavor profile matures, becomes rich, full and round.
