Suntory "Yamazaki" 18 year old Single Malt Whisky 43%,
Yamazaki Distillery was the first whisky distillery built in Japan (1923). The first domestic whisky "Suntory Shirofuda" (blended) went on sale in 1929.
The distillery is situated at the foot of Mt. Tenzan on west-east of Kyoto where three rivers meet to form the River Yodo just south of the distillery. The well water in this district is famous for its good character despite its location between the two big cities of Osaka and Kyoto.
