The Japanese public preferred a softer, smoother, less-smokey version of whisky, and their master distillers worked tirelessly to cater to the public's flavor profile. The result, a whisky that rivals even the legendary scotches because of the quality and never before seen flavor and finishes. Not to mention Japan made the whisky Highball famous due to the light, sweet, and floral whiskies effect on sparkling water.

Tasting notes

Yamato does just that, pairing perfectly with the traditional Japanese whisky flavor profile. You can witness a silky smooth finish, beautiful fruits, and vanillas from the start. Yamato is your entrance into the world of high-end Japanese whisky. Enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or in a highball.
