Aged: No age statement
Product of: Japan
Yamazaki single malt whisky aged approximately 10 years in 480 litre American oak Puncheons stored in warehouses in the mist-shrouded Yamazaki region. These stout casks mature the whisky slowly due to a relatively small surface area being in contact with the whisky. Bottled without chill filtration.

Initial aromatic peach quickly overpowered by vanilla, butterscotch, coconut and tarte tatin with delicate gingerbread and roasted pineapple.
Slightly sweet, buttery vanilla pastry, chamois leather and pineapple fruitiness.
