    This is a rare example of whisky aged in casks made by Suntory's own coopers from Japan's indigenous Mizunara oak (Quercus mongolica) also known as ‘Japanese Oak’. Mizunara is difficult to make into casks and its loose grain makes it prone to leakage but it is prized due to the flavours it imparts.
