Yamazaki Limited Edition 2021 700ml
YAMAZAKI LIMITED EDITION 2021
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 LEs in days past were blends of malts in their late teens, LE 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
