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!
