The Yamazaki Whisky is Suntory's flagship single malt whisky, from Japan’s first and oldest malt distillery.

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.
