Yamazaki 18 Year Old is Suntory’s flagship single malt whisky, from Japan’s first and oldest malt distillery, multi-layered with fruit and Mizunara aromas.
Spiritual and deep, made at Yamazaki Distillery, the soul place of Japanese whisky, its signature multi-layered taste is highly praised by whisky connoisseurs all over the world. Now more difficult to find due to the Japanese whisky crisis.
However, this complex single malt whisky has a dark honey hue and a bold aroma that entwines vanilla and a juicy red apple. The silky palate mixes gentle smoke with mouth-watering dry notes—oak, leather, and tea, finishing with a smoky exhale accented by orange peel and espresso.”
In conclusion, Yamazaki 18 Year Old is an award-winning Japanese single malt. This legendary Yamazaki release has been a frequent winner at global awards competitions, including Gold at the 2007 International Spirits Challenge and a Double Gold at the 2005 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The increased recognition and global awareness for this famous release have resulted in diminished supplies while the distillery attempts to ramp up production to meet demand.
Finally, the Yamazaki age 18 lies in the middle of Yamazaki’s line of products, between the Yamazaki 12-Year-Old and the Yamazaki 25-Year-Old bottles. It’s a staple product among whisky elites and one of the highest quality bottles coming out of Japan. The release is a delicate yet profound experience of what Japanese distillers can achieve.
