It’s finally here... A true masterpiece!
700ml / 48% ABV / Non Chill-Filtered
The Yamazaki 2017 Mizunara Cask Edition is something truly exceptional. It not only lives up to the worldwide attention surrounding its release but exceeds it...
This will sell out - don’t miss your opportunity to own a slice of Japanese whisky history!
For their latest release, Suntory blenders have brought the essence of the Mizunara oak into a tantalizingly spicy liquid, reminiscent of incense and uniquely Japanese – with only 5000 bottles available globally (with a large portion directly allocated to bars, restaurants and businesses).
This exquisite single malt will be the centrepiece of your collection, whether you open it to savour on special occasions or keep it as a wise investment for years to come.
The presentation is superb - the solid cabinet box is made of oak from old barrels used for aging Suntory whiskies.
The Echizen paper label is hand-made of 100% cotton to reproduce the original expression and depth of Japanese paper.
Age is key to unlocking the signature taste of Mizunara (Japanese Oak) – only a long maturation period can provide the distinctive spiciness and incense-like aromas, with notes of sandalwood and aloe wood that Suntory considers as the quintessential “Mizunara-ness.”
Found in only a few regions in Japan, the rare Mizunara oak is hard and permeable in nature, which made it a difficult wood to use in cask making, as it is hard to shape and join with precision and doesn’t retain liquid well.
Through perseverance, Suntory’s craftsman have mastered this art of Mizunara cask-making, identifying the perfect trees to make their casks.
“I wanted to reveal the whisky’s soul; that is, the art of Mizunara – a heightened sense and awakened palate engaged through aromas and flavours never known before. Encountering it should be a moment of epiphany,” Suntory’s Chief Blender, Shinji Fukuyo said.
In his pursuit of a true Mizunara character, Fukuyo tasted a few hundred Mizunara whiskies and selected casks with a minimum age of 18 years, with a small portion of the blend exceeding 50 years of maturation.
Nose: Rich and elegant fragrance, aloe wood, cinnamon.
Palate: Condensed sweetness, silky texture, dry fruits, coconut, and orange marmalade.
Finish: distinctive spiciness that lingers with Japanese incense, aloe wood, cinnamon and tartness.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity secure your bottle of this exceptional masterpiece - a brilliant and distinctly Japanese whisky.
