Yamazaki 18 mizunara cask
The Yamazaki Mizunara Cask is a limited edition blended whisky. Each year the distilleries releases a new limited edition with its own unique flavor profile and packaging design. The Yamazaki 18 Mizunara Cask combines Japanese malt whiskies aged in sherry casks with Japanese barley malt whiskies matured in satsuma orange blossom wood casks. The result is a complex blend that conveys both fruity malt and woody notes in its smell. Its taste is as intriguing as its appearance, full of honeyed sweetness, but underlined by rich grain notes which linger on the back palate for quite some time.
The Yamazaki 18 is a whisky made to be enjoyed by the most discerning of palates, with a relatively high price tag and exclusive distribution by Suntory. While it’s not as good as some of the other whiskies in its class, it is still a very good choice for people who want to enjoy single malt whiskey without making huge sacrifices in quality.

In 2014, it was awarded 93 points by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible and crowned ‘Best Japanese whisky ever’ It has now been re-launched after a 2 year absence with a stunning new presentation and packaging.
