When it comes to the Japanese Whisky game, don’t count out the young’uns. 
 
Ten years ago, you could’ve found this expression in just about every local store at a great price. But since the Japanese Whisky Tsunami, even these young bottles have become scarce. Hell, the price on ‘em speaks for itself.  
 
This Yamazaki 12YO uses 100% malt Whiskies that are at least 12 years old. It’s aged in a mix of American, Spanish and Japanese oak barrels and is fermented longer than usual in wooden washbacks, resulting in a creamier character. 
 
Get your hands on this one, asap.
 
*This bottle is a collector's item, we will not be able to entertain any refunds or exchanges. 
**Individual orders limited to one item per person, as we wish to give everyone the opportunity to participate.

Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
Yamazaki has the largest share of single malt Whisky in the Japanese market.
In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
