Suntory Yamazaki Puncheon 2013
Whisky Region: Japanese Whisky
YAMAZAKI PUNCHEON 2013, made from single malts raised in American oak barrels containing bourbon. The peculiarity of this edition lies in its aging in puncheon barrels, a stocky barrel of about 480 liters. Developed from fine grain North American white oak, the Puncheon allows the whisky to age slowly.
It is particularly suitable for long ripening, the contact with the wood being reduced per liter of whisky. Bourbon barrels impregnate the whisky with rich, sweet flavors reminiscent of vanilla. Yamazaki Puncheon is beautifully elegant and its fruity and floral aromas come close to perfection. Available in limited edition, this version Puncheon 2013 is a rare and prestigious whisky.
