Yamazaki Bourbon Barrel
Suntory Yamazaki Bourbon Barrel is a rich whisky with sweet oak, spice, and vanilla flavors from the extended 18-month aging. This limited edition of this expression was created using liquid from one single cask filled in October 2011, rather than from a batch of casks filled at one time.
The Yamazaki Bourbon Barrel is a luxurious whisky, aged in new oak barrels. The whisky is mellowed by the two-year process of aging in American White Oak barrels that have previously held Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey as well as Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
Yamazaki is the pinnacle of Japanese whisky, combining a unique blend of malts from all three islands in age-dated casks to create this award winning whiskey.
Suntory Yamazaki Bourbon Barrel 2011 is a single malt whisky from Japan. It was created using the finest barley, water and yeast and aged for 6 to 8 years prior to maturation in ex-bourbon barrels. The result is a complex yet delicate oak and vanilla character with notes of dried fruits and caramel. In addition to being smooth, creamy and easy-drinking, this whisky would also pair superbly with chocolate brownie or cheesecake.
Suntory Yamazaki Bourbon Barrel is a limited edition, highly sought after whisky that’s crafted by the major distilling company in Japan. This award-winning blend is aged in Yamazaki casks and married together with bourbon casks before being finished off in freshly dumped bourbon casks from Kentucky. The result? A delicious Japanese single malt that stands above all else.
Yamazaki Bourbon Barrel 2011
Yamazaki Bourbon Barrel 2011 is one of our most treasured products. It’s a rare opportunity to try a barrel-aged whisky from Japan’s oldest distillery. This expression is a blend of “two distilleries” from their Yamazaki distillery (10 year old and 12 year old) that was put into American Oak casks for five years, before it was finished in wooden barrels used for aging bourbon for an additional two years.
The Yamazaki 12 year old single malt whisky is aged in wooden casks which have housed wine, sherry and bourbon. The unique Yamazaki distillery is the only one to be built on a natural elevation off the ground, allowing cool air to pass through it naturally and creating a soft gentle place for the casks to rest. The Suntory Yamazaki Bourbon Barrel 2011 is a rare premium edition of the classic 12 year old that has been filled with fine Kentucky bourbon whiskey and matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels.
If you’re looking for a well-rounded, rich and mellow flavor with notes of vanilla and caramel, then look no further than our 2011 release. The finest oak barrel aged malt whiskey delivers a rich flavor with a smooth finish.
