Other Information

The hugely anticipated Yamazaki - Sherry Cask 2016.  

An incredible whisky that has been matured in Oloroso sherry casks, aged between 12 and 15 years old and even 25 years old, blended together with older single malt stock by chief blender Shinji Fukuyo.

This bottling is the follow up to the famous 2013 release which was described as 'near incredible genius' and winner of 'Best Whisky in the World' by Whisky Guru Jim Murray.

5000 bottles were produced, with rumours of less than 200 bottles available in the UK.
