ABOUT

The Suntory Yamazaki Distiller's Reserve is a flagship single malt whiskey from Japan’s first and oldest malt distillery, the Yamazaki Distillery. Established in 1923 by founder Shinjiro Torii, the Yamazaki Distillery is renowned for its range of exceptional whiskies. This Distiller's Reserve variant is a testament to the distillery's mastery in blending, combining young talent whiskey matured in Bordeaux wine casks with about 20-year-old Sherry casks whiskey and whiskey from Mizunara oak casks. The result is a whiskey that resonates with the unique qualities of Japanese oak, offering a nuanced and layered taste experience.

TASTING NOTES

Nose: The aroma is an inviting blend of strawberry, cherry, and the distinct Mizunara (Japanese oak). It's a symphony of fragrant raspberries and strawberries with a creamy coconut undertone that tantalizes the senses.

Palate: A melody of raspberry and white peach with a touch of coconut, leading to a cascade of summer fruits like cherries, redcurrants, blackcurrants, and peaches. Subtle grapefruit and vanilla notes add complexity.

Finish: The finish is sweet, with vanilla and a clear, gentle hint of cinnamon.

FOOD PAIRING

The rich and sweet flavor profile of the Yamazaki Distiller's Reserve makes it an ideal pairing with seasoned foods, particularly fried chicken and other dishes commonly served in Japanese Izakayas. Its compatibility with Japanese cuisine extends to chicken (Yakitori) and other seasoned dishes, enhancing the flavors with its complex notes.
