Yamazaki 18 Year Old Japanese Single Malt Whisky
The Yamazaki 18 Year Old Single Malt is a Japanese whisky from Suntory, the largest alcoholic beverage makers of Japan. It was first released in 1992, and has been one of the best releases from the Osaka based Yamazaki Distillery. The 18 Year Old is a part of the Yamazaki core range from Suntory, which includes three other expressions – a no-age-statement single malt, a 12 Year Old and the 25 Year Old. Yamazaki Distillery was the first ever whisky distillery established in Japan, and holds a special place in the Japanese whisky industry. History of Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky Suntory founder Shinjiro Torii began the company in 1899 as a small store dealing in wines and other alcoholic beverages. His store was located in Osaka, Japan and garnered much prosperity for Torii. This led to him creating his own brand of fortified wine, the Akadama Port Wine. Torii chose the name Kotobukiya Company for his company, and wished to establish a whisky distillery in Japan. He sought the help of Masataka Taketsuru, a Japanese chemist with experience of whisky distillation. Torii employed Taketsuru at the Kotobukiya Company to help him build the Yamazaki Distillery in 1923. Distillation at Yamazaki began in 1924, and five years later, the Suntory Shirofuda (White Label) was launched. It was the first ever whisky distilled, matured and bottled in Japan. Taketsuru left the Kotobukiya Company after a decade, establishing the Nikka Whisky brand. Torii took the Kotobukiya Company to new heights, launching a few other types of whisky. Marketing played a key role in raising the popularity of Torii’s whisky products in Japan. The name Suntory was chosen to replace Kotobukiya Company in 1963, taking inspiration from the company’s first ever whisky brand. After Torii passed away, his son and successor, Keizo Saji built the Chita Grain Whisky Distillery in 1972, and the Hakushu Malt Whisky Distillery in 1973. This would enable Suntory to produce more single malt expressions, and even their own blends. The Yamazaki single malts became accompanied by single malts from Hakushu, and the Hibiki range of blended Japanese whiskies. Thus the Suntory range of Japanese whiskies was diversified, eventually adding the Chita Single Grain whisky and Toki blended whisky to the range.

Teaher's Origin Blended Scotch Whisky
One of the first in what Teacher’s owners Jim Beam say will be a line of new releases for the blend. The name “Origin” refers to the blended whisky’s aging process in smaller quarter casks, which would have been used by distilleries in the 19th century. This aging technique also allows for a greater ratio of wood to spirit, heightening “oak contact”, which Teacher’s claims creates a whisky that is 30% more mature. This blended dram contains 65% malt in the mixture, a high proportion, and uses over 30 different single malts with a large quantity coming from the unusually peated highland malt, Ardmore. On the nose the drinker is greeted with malty biscuits, toffee, sweet bright oak, peat smoke and dark honey. The palate is faithful to the nose, but adds a chewy toffee-led mouthfeel and a little bright cereal sweetness. The finish is dense and long with a lingering woodspice note. A lovely, smoky and complex whisky which offers outstanding value for money, particularly in this larger 1 litre bottle.
