2022 YAMAZAKI LIMITED EDITION, TSUKURIWAKE SELECTION
With the introduction of the 2022 Yamazaki® Limited Edition Tsukuriwake Selection, the House of Suntory unveils the foundational pillars of Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky.
This collection honors Tsukuriwake, which means “artisanship through a diversity of making” and is composed of four Yamazaki single malts - Puncheon, Peated Malt, Spanish Oak and Mizunara, that together make the composition of Yamazaki, the pioneer of Japanese Single Malt.
Yamazaki Puncheon Single Malt Japanese Whisky

The Yamazaki Puncheon Single Malt Whisky is comprised of meticulously selected malts aged exclusively in puncheons crafted from hand-selected American oak. These large casks - approximately 480 liters, allow malt whiskies to mature slowly, imbuing them with a complexity and vibrance. They impart their subtle notes essential to the delicate base of the Yamazaki Single Malt.

Nose: Green apple, mature pear, acacia honey with hint of vanilla
Palate: Clean, velvety and mild, with delicate butterscotch notes

Yamazaki Spanish Oak Single Malt Japanese Whisky
The Spanish oak is considered as the depth “enhancer” giving Yamazaki its quintessential multi-layered full flavor with mature fruity notes.
The Yamazaki Spanish Oak Single Malt Whisky is comprised of meticulously selected malt whiskies matured in the highest quality oak casks from Northern Spain. They impart a delicately rich and decadent palate with subtle acidity and fruity aromas essential to the multi-layered flavor profile of the Yamazaki Single Malt.
