Japan's Oldest Whisky Distillery Releases Limited Edition Offering Aged For 18 Years Exclusively In Japanese Mizunara Oak
CHICAGO, Sept. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For more than three generations, the master blenders at Suntory Whisky, the founding house of Japanese Whisky, have devoted themselves to pursuing the harmony of Japanese nature and craftsmanship. One of the most impressive examples of this pursuit is found in Mizunara, the Japanese oak. The wood from this rare and demanding tree inspired Suntory to take a momentous step forward in whisky making, both in perfecting new cask-making techniques and in creating flavors never before tasted in whisky. Suntory's blenders have brought the essence of the noble Mizunara into a peerless liquid – tantalizingly spicy, redolent of incense and uniquely Japanese.
Revealing their mastery of the Art of Mizunara, The House of Suntory Whisky proudly introduces The Yamazaki Mizunara 2017 Edition™ available as of October 2017.
Taste Blessed by The Passage of Time
Throughout their long history using Mizunara casks, Suntory's blenders have observed that age is the key to unlocking the signature taste of Mizunara whisky. A long maturation period reveals the distinctive spiciness and incense-like flavor of sandalwood and aloe wood that Suntory considers as the quintessential "Mizunara-ness."
With many other cask types, whisky usually reaches a maturation peak at some point. But even at 50 years and beyond, the top-note and after-taste aromas of Mizunara whiskies are generally still improving. This unique ability to support long-term aging affords endless opportunities to experience the evolution and refinement of Mizunara whiskies over time.
