The first cask stored at the Yamazaki soon after distilling started their in 1923 was a 480 litre Spanish oak Oloroso sherry cask and this single malt is similarly aged in such a cask. Suntory buy the casks in Spain where they are filled with Oloroso sherry and seasoned with the wine for 3 years.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/09/2012


(Bottled 2012, released October 2012) Clear, deep teak with burnished bronze highlights.


Blackened raisony burnt fruit cake, dried chocolate, vinous amontillado sherry and subtle clove spice. Faint mint jelly and quince jam.


Heavy and bitter sweet with robust but not overly tannic or dry old oak, Christmas pudding, prunes, figs and burnt toffee.


Long, burnt dried burnt and lingering mint jelly freshness. Unlike many other sherry whiskies, this takes a splash of water well.
