Yamazaki Limited Edition 2023 Bottling Note

Yamazaki Limited Edition 2023 is a single malt Japanese whisky, a special release from the Yamazaki distillery owned by Suntory. This particular edition has been well-received since its launch in 2021, praised for its rich flavor and unique presentation.

The Yamazaki Limited Edition 2023 is known for its full-bodied taste. Key to this depth of character is the use of Mizunara oak casks, a rare and highly prized wood in whisky maturation. The whisky itself is comprised of a blend of Yamazaki single malts aged for at least 12 years in these Mizunara casks, specifically those that were freshly used for the first time. This extended aging in virgin Mizunara casks imparts a distinctive richness and a touch of sweetness, alongside hints of fruit and spice.

Yamazaki Limited Edition 2023 isn’t just about the whisky itself; the presentation reflects the exclusivity of the product. The bottle features a textured Japanese paper label designed to resemble “torafu”, a prized wood grain pattern. The gift box that accompanies the bottle depicts the Yamazaki distillery’s maturing warehouses, adding a sense of history and place to the experience.

For whisky connoisseurs and collectors, the chance to experience this unique expression and its intricate flavour profile, created through meticulous maturing techniques, makes Yamazaki Limited Edition 2023 a highly sought-after treasure.

Yamazaki Limited Edition 2023 Tasting Note

Nose: The nose opens with a burst of tropical fruits like pineapple and orange, accented by warm nutmeg. As it breathes, deeper notes of creamy coconut and subtle florals emerge, hinting at the Mizunara oak influence.

Palate: Luxuriously full-bodied, with honey sweetness leading the way. Hints of vanilla, ginger, and unexpected blueberry add complexity. The Mizunara oak contributes a subtle woodiness that harmonizes with the other flavors.

Finish: The finish lingers pleasantly, with a shift from initial vanilla sweetness to a warming ginger note and a faint wisp of smoke. The aftertaste is clean and invites further exploration.

Overall: Yamazaki Limited Edition 2023 displays a balanced and complex profile. Extensive aging in virgin Mizunara casks delivers a unique richness. From the initial fruity aromas to the lingering smoky finish, this whisky showcases the artistry of Suntory’s Yamazaki distillery.
