      Japanese Single Malts with solid age statement are increasingly getting more expensive and hard to find. However, the superb Yamazaki 12 from the oldest distillery in Japan is worth the effort! The nose is fruity sweet and heavy with overripe grapes and blackberries, nuts, raisins and strong vanilla notes. Tastewise, a well-balanced and full-bodied arrival is followed by mild spiciness before the oak complexity kicks in. With a lasting, substantial and slightly dry finish, Mizunara cask maturation gives this malt a very distinct and delicate aftertaste. A piece of art!

      Taste: Herbs Floral Orange Ginger Tropical Fruit a light sweetness Sweet jasmine oakiness Oak Hay

      Finish: Mint Lemon Lemon Peel light, yet long Ginger

      Comment: The nose is quite fruity yet not quite as fruity on the palate. A nice combo of lighter flavors, but that's not to say that light doesn't mean intense flavors.

      Taste: Sweet Fruit Spices

      Finish: Spices Sweet Oak

      Comment: Elegant fragrance of honey and vanilla. Deeper in, grassy notes and little zest. The flavor is mouthful, silky honey, soft spices, crystalized barley sugar. On the finish, warm... the spices appeared and honey fade out.
