Suntory Yamazaki 12 years single malt “Watami President Choice”
Suntory Yamazaki Distillery 12 years old single malt whisky. Yamazaki was the first Japanese distillery, established in 1923. The distillery is situated in the vale of Yamazaki, being an area of dense bamboo groves at the foot of Mt. Tennozan, outside Kyoto – Japan’s ancient capital and stronghold of traditional Japanese culture. The spiced wood arrives first, then dried cranberries, with a lasting muddle of orange marmalade and honey sweetness.
Yamazaki is Japan’s oldest whisky distillery opened in 1923, it was founded by Shinjiro Torii near Oaska. The location was chosen because of the excellent water supply in the area. This seems to have payed off, today Single Malts from the Yamazaki distillery has the largest share of any single malts whiskies in Japan. The 18 year old Yamazaki Single Malts is thought by many to be the best whisky in the world and has for example won six consecutive double gold medals at the San Francisco Spirits Competitions from 2008 to 2013.
