About The Yamazaki Mizunara 18 Year Old 100th Anniversary Edition Japanese Single Malt Whisky

This Yamazaki Mizunara Single Malt is comprised of meticulously selected malt whiskies all aged for a minimum of 18 years in solely Mizunara casks, created in honour of House of Suntory’s centenary.

The resulting blend showcases the rare, distinctive beauty of Mizunara oak, which is considered the signature “enhancer” of Yamazaki, providing unique Japanese character and elegance. Honouring its namesake, it’s made in Japan’s first and oldest malt distillery, founded in 1923 by Shinjiro Torii. To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the founding House of Japanese whisky, we recall a whisky created to suit the delicate palate of the Japanese people.
Yamazaki 18YO Mizunara is truly a gift from the hands of Suntory’s past craftsmen. The legendary Japanese Oak, Mizunara, is widely regarded as a difficult wood to master. The House of Suntory blending team first started experimenting with Mizunara wood as early as the 1940’s, with the guidance of the First-Generation Master Blender, Shinjiro Torii and Second-Generation Master Blender, Keizo Saji.
Their first tasting identified that the young liquid in the Mizunara cask had a dominating flavour and aroma. Aged through Japan’s distinctive four seasons, nurtured in the land of Yamazaki, the determined past blenders found a balance of maturation and harmonious blend that led to mellow the force of Mizunara character. The whiskies are now matured until they can take on the distinctive Japanese spiciness and incense-like flavour of sandalwood and agarwood.
