Yamazaki 18 Year Old Mizunara 2017 Edition
The Yamazaki 18 year old Mizunara 2017 Edition is composed of whiskies aged for 18 years or longer in casks made from Mizunara, or Japanese oak, an extremely rare tree, which imparts a dignified oriental flavor that confirms the immense value of these casks. This whisky is the pinnacle of Mizunara-aged single malt whiskies. “When whisky lovers talk about the grandeur of Japanese whisky, the enlightenment they desire can be found within this bottle. Refined luxury is evocative of toasted marshmallows, sweet incense, butter-soft caramels, oak spices, and ground cinnamon. All the hallmarks of Mizunara are here. Concentrated sweet citrus, so intensely fruity on the palate; the mouthfeel is rapturously silky with touches of mango, dried apricot, and gentle but resilient spices.”
This is a 2017 release of the Yamazaki Mizunara – a no-age-statement, single malt Japanese whisky matured in casks made from Mizunara Oak. These special casks impart some beautifully unique hints of sandalwood and fragrant wood, making this whisky a truly singular experience.
