The Distiller's Reserve is the entry point to the Yamazaki range of whiskies, lauded for their elgence and complexity but in increasingly short supply.
A non-age-statement expression, this is a mixture of aged stock and what Suntory describe as "young talent" - that is, casks that have matured quicker than their siblings. The casks chosen have been married together in ex-red wine casks, while portions of the aged stock is believedÂ to have matured in sherry and mizunara oak.
Expect rich fruits - with a decent nose of raspberry thanks to the wine casks - with vanillas, mild spices and a nuttyness. Velvety in texture.
