Yamazaki Bourbon Barrel 2013
From Yamazaki, the oldest distillery in Japan, comes the 2013 release of their bourbon barrel-matured single malt whisky. It's made from carefully selected Yamazaki malts which have all been aged in 180-litre bourbon barrels, which have bestowed distinctively sweet notes of vanilla upon the excellent no-age statement Japanese whisky.
