1. 2022 Yamazaki Tsukuriwake Selection

Whisky fans can get excited as the 2022 Yamazaki Tsukuriwake Selection is available in Singapore. The collection was created to honour Tsukuriwake (translated to mean ‘artisanship through a diversity of making’) and comprises four Yamazaki single malts: Puncheon, Peated Malt, Spanish Oak and Mizunara.

The Puncheon is a beautiful expression, comprised of selected malts aged in a puncheon cask crafted from American oak. The result is a complex and vibrant bottle that teases the nose with aromas of green apple, mature pear and acacia honey. These notes echo through the palate, finishing with oaky woodiness and a subtle sweetness.
