In a nutshell:
A rich, fruity and full bodied Japanese Single Malt matured in a mix of Sherry, Bordeaux and Mizunara oak casks.
First released in 2014 Distiller's Reserve is one of their more recent expressions and is aged in a mix of Bordeaux wine and Sherry casks which gives it a richness and delightful red berry notes. There's also just a hint of floral oakiness from the portion of the blend aged in Mizunara casks. The aromas are certainly extensive and complex while the flavours on the palate are nicely understated. It finishes with a small flourish of vanilla and sweet cinnamon. It's a deep and well put together whisky and an excellent example of the expertise at Yamazaki.
