This single cask was distilled in 1998 and matured in hogshead number DX70502 until bottling in 2009. The maturation was at Ohmi Aging Cellar.
The Ohmi Aging Cellar is located around forty miles northwest of the Yamazaki distillery, and holds most of the spirit produced at the distillery. Built in 1972, the so called cellar has expanded greatly over the years, and now houses multiple warehouses, filled with casks. After almost twenty years the Yamazaki cooperage was also moved to the Ohmi complex.
