The Yamazaki 2015 Limited Edition is an interesting and tasty dram from the Suntory distillery. Following the success of the Distillers Reserve editions of Hakushu and Yamazaki, they decided to release an older, more exclusive limited edition of the Yamazaki single malt. With the 2015 release Suntory used some single malts aged over 20 years in sherry cask and blended it with some aged in younger bourbon barrels.
Distillery Background: The Yamazaki Distillery is Japan’s first and oldest malt whisky distillery established in 1923 by Suntory's founder Shinjiro Torii.
Inspired by traditional Scottish whisky, Torii envisioned a Japanese approach by choosing a terrain and climate completely different to those of Scotland to create a unique kind of whisky. Nestled proudly on the periphery of Kyoto, this region was formerly referred to as "Minaseno", where one of the purest waters of Japan originates.
