Yamazaki Limited Edition 2023 Release Japanese Whisky
Between 2014 and 2017, the Yamazaki Limited Edition bottlings were some of the most sought-after annual Japanese whisky releases on the market. Limited in numbers and containing some precious, aged Yamazaki liquid inside, they delivered in quality, appearance, and collectability. In 2021, Suntory revitalized the series.
Composed of malt twelve years and older, these releases are also reported to contain some much older material for added depth and complexity.
It was only once the realities of the perilous whisky shortage took hold that these wonderful expressions fell by the wayside, making way for a number of less-premium NAS whiskies such as the Essence of Suntory Volumes 3 and 4 and the recent Yamazaki Cask Finish releases.
This is the 2023 Limited Edition, aged in Mizunara oak casks.
Nose: Notes of pineapple, orange peels, and gentle nutmeg
Taste: fruity and spicy, sweet honey, creamy coconut, and subtle hints of blueberry.
Finish: Long with notes of vanilla, ginger, and gentle smoke. Pleasant, spicy aftertaste
