Suntory Yamazaki Distillery

Yamazaki Limited Edition 2021 700ml


Yamazaki Limited Edition 2021 700ml

After a four-year hiatus, Suntory's reintroduction of the Yamazaki Limited Edition brand couldn't come at a better time.

Yamazaki Limited Edition 2021 is the first such release since 2017. There's a striking departure from previous releases in terms of the label design, this time calling to mind mizunara grain. Hopefully, the contents of the bottle will live up to the wide acclaim of the series. 

While Yamazaki Limited Editions in days past were blends of malts in their late teens, Limited Edition 2021 here features malts 12+ years old. However, mizunara fans will be pleased to know that this release uses only virgin mizunara cask whiskies. Suntory tells us to expect a smooth, thick, sweet-and-sourness:

Nose: pineapple, orange, and nutmeg
Palate: honey, coconut cream, and blueberries

Finish: vanilla, ginger, and light smoke

Alc: 43%
