This time, I’d like to talk about Yamazaki 18 years old, an 18-year old single malt whisky from Japan’s first whisky distillery, the Yamazaki Distillery!

Yamazaki is probably the most famous whisky in Japan, as both whisky lovers and non-whisky lovers alike know at least its name. It is no exaggeration to say that it has become a synonym for Japanese whisky as Japanese whisky has become recognized worldwide.

So, I would like to explain in detail about “Yamazaki 18 years”.

Our Take

In the past few years, Japanese whiskies have won numerous awards at international whiskey competitions, such as the Yamazaki 18 Year Old, which has solidified their reputation in the world.

I think it was probably the international recognition that sparked the popularity of Japanese whisky in Japan.

Those of you who have worked in the alcoholic beverage industry know that the Japanese have been producing and selling world-class whisky at low prices since the beginning.

I don’t think this means that Japanese whisky has become better in the past few years, but rather that the world has noticed the excellence of Japanese whisky and Japanese people have rediscovered it.

Unfortunately, the amount of whisky in circulation has drastically decreased and the price has risen so high that it is no longer easy to drink.
