Yamazaki has been passed for generations. In 2006 the distillery switched to a small pot still in order to produce a variety of high quality straight malts, with a depth and richness that could withstand long periods of aging.

Yamazaki single malts are legends. They are hard to find and not easy to buy when found. All of their Whiskies have won numerous prizes.

The 12YO Yamazaki is delicate and fruity, whereas the 18YO is darker with dried fruits, chocolate and Mizunara. Their 25YO is a rich, complex one with aromatic and bitter compontents.

The Distiller's Reserve is often referred to as the starting point of Yamazaki with red forest fruits and Mizunara.

What does Yamazaki taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Yamazaki japanese whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
