Yamazaki Limited Edition 2014 often be mistaken as a simple no-aged single malt…
Due to the inabundance of old whiskies, Suntory offering a limted edition of its Yamazaki single malt.
Suntory expertly refines their compositions, proving to us once again that quality does not necessarily require a certain number of years. Even if we could consider the Yamazaki Limited Edition 2014 as an ageless brew, it is a newly assembled work of young and old whiskies that has been aged in barrels of different origins.
The Yamazaki Limited Edition 2014 is composed of three single malts:
- a single malt aged 20 years in sherry casks made out of European oak ; these barrels were used for maturating red wines.
- another single malt aged 20 years in port wine casks made out of European oak ; these barrels were previously used for maturing port wines.
- a young single malt aged in bourbon barrels made out of American white oak.
