As its name suggests, Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2013 is entirely composed of single malts aged in spanish oak barrels that were used to age the famous and very tannic wines of Andalusia. It also considered the "best whisky in the world" in the 2015 edition of Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.

This sublime expression is marked by the typical aromas of candy created during aging in sherry casks, and a rich, round texture. It will seduce all lovers of whisky aged in sherry cask.

Yamazaki distillery can produce alone more than sixty single malts with different styles and varied characters. A part of this diversity is achieved through the influence of wood barrels during aging. To highlight the specific characteristics associated with each type of barrels, Suntory has created a limited edition : the Yamazaki Cask Collection 2013.

Product limited to 1 bottles per order.
