It would be my first from japan. I'm Interested.
I need to go there for the lagavulin buy anyway, thought I could pick one of these up along with a Highland park 18 that is going for $92.00.
I think this store has good pricing overall.
Minneapolis 10% tax adds up though.
I have little hesitation in suggesting the Yamazaki 12 to just about anyone and seeing that our tastes are close in many ways, would be very surprised is you, or just about anyone for that matter, didn't immediately fall for the Yamazaki 12.
I've got one bottle now, another on the way, along with two other Japanese favorites - Yoichi 10 and Taketsuru 17.
I may have already said it before, but the Yamazaki 12, being one of the only Japanese releases properly imported, is the only one you'll find for less on this side of the ocean than in Japan. If I recall correctly it'll cost you about $70-$80 over there.
