Well, last month saw the last of my monthly Whisky club collection, and along with the Yamazaki 10 Year Single Malt came this unusual package…
Inside was a Suntory Yamazaki Distillery Pen made by Mitsubishi.
The pen is apparently made from dark oak wood from old Yamazaki whisky casks that have held whisky for more than 50 years, and the oak had been growing for 50 years before being made into casks, making it more than 100 years old. (Thanks to Whiskies R Us for that info!)
And it’s quite a nice pen too!
The Whiskey Club is continuing for another year with only 5 of the whiskeys being repeated from
last year, but I decided not to carry on, as it turns out it’s cheaper to buy the whiskies from my local
I’m keeping their leaflet with this years line-up on so I can buy the same whiskies though!
