Tasting Notes for CLASS Magazine

Appearance - Clear, deep teak with burnished bronze highlights.

Aroma - Blackened raisony burnt fruit cake, dried chocolate, vinous amontillado sherry and subtle clove spice. Faint mint jelly and quince jam.

Taste - Heavy and bitter sweet with robust but not overly tannic or dry old oak, Christmas pudding, prunes, figs and burnt toffee.

Aftertaste - Long, burnt dried burnt and lingering mint jelly freshness. Unlike many other sherry whiskies, this takes a splash of water well.

Rating - 4/5

I wonder why the comment is in 2009 while the bottle released in 2012...

This is a fantastic, someone bought me a bottle for my birthday, one of the best presents I have ever been given. The smell alone is incredibly delicious, so smooth and very easy to drink. Love it

Smooth and sweet whisky, very similar to the 18yo Yamazaki. Sweet nose, quite interesting. Different intensity of the taste compared to its cousin, I found it slightly more subtle. Overall very similar to the 18yo (which I still give an extra mark or two) but one of the best I have tried so far. Highly recommended!

Quite impressive. Fans of other Yamazaki or sherried whiskies in general should give this a try. It's pretty distinctive and makes for a nice change of pace. Good price too.
