This old-style 12 year old Japanese single malt is one of the original classic Japanese whiskies that helped introduce the world to this wonderful alternative style of whisky.
Produced by Suntory as their flagship single malt, this beauty was distilled at Japan's oldest distillery, Yamazaki. This particular offering was bottled circa 2007 and imported exclusively for the US market by Beam Suntory Import Co. of Deerfield, IL.
Matured in a combination of American, Spanish and Japanese oak casks, this elegant and smooth whisky has created its own legend and has a cult-like following and fan base.
Please note, there is a significant tear along the top of the presentation box - see image inset for detail.
