Yamazaki Puncheon 2013 Bottling Note
The Yamazaki distillery matured the whisky for this release in Puncheon casks, which much, much larger than your regular hogshead cask. A hoggie will hold 230 litres, whereas the mighty Puncheon holds 480 litres. What this means for this Yamazaki single malt Japanese whisky is that it matures in the Puncheon slower, allowing it to gently acquire flavour from the cask. This is the 2013 Yamazaki Puncheon release.
