Yamazaki Tsukuriwake Selection Mizunara 2022 Edition

Since 1923, Suntory has pioneered the Art of Japanese Whisky. The creation and innovation unique to Suntory Whisky is revered among whisky lovers worldwide.
The Yamazaki Whisky is Suntory's flagship single malt whisky, from Japan’s first and oldest malt distillery. With a range of options from Yamazaki Distiller’s Reserve to 12, 18, and 25 years old, all of these prized whiskies contain carefully blended components aged in American, Spanish, and Japanese Mizunara oak.

The 2022 Yamazaki Cask Series Tsukuriwake Selection is a collection of four whiskies: Puncheon, Peated Malt, Spanish Oak and Mizunara, that lifts the veil on the foundational pillars of Yamazaki single malt. Tsukuriwake means “artisanship through a diversity of making”, a philosophy that the House of Suntory has embraced in its entirety.
Part of the Tsukuriwake Selection, the 2022 Edition Yamazaki Mizunara shows off the elegant spice of Japan’s famous Mizunara oak. Yamazaki has used this oak since the distillery first opened, but it was not until after World War II that it began to use locally grown Mizunara in earnest, embracing the distinctive spice and incense-like character this oak provides.

    Nose:   Rich and elegant top note, custard cream and cinnamon.

    Taste:    Gentle on the tongue, aromatic and round with sweet spiced notes.

    Finish:    Distinctive deep woody notes reminiscent of Japanese incense.
