A fresh and fruity whisky from Yamazaki, full of red fruit and a touch of sherry cask. It's also got some mizunara (Japanese oak) matured whisky in the mix, which comes through as a complex spicy and almost incense-like note. A well put together and deep dram.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by Andy M
The wine cask seems to dominate the nose here with strawberries and red fruit taking centre stage. However, sitting quietly in the background is the incense from the mizunara, a hint of dried fruit from the sherry cask and a touch of coconut.
An abundance of red fruit again, with raspberries, strawberries and even redcurrants coming through, although there’s more dimensions to this than the first wine cask sample that we tried. White peach, a hint of wood and spice, back-up notes of red cherries and candied fruits all come into play here as well.
Relatively long finish with vanilla and sweet spice dancing around the tongue.
This seriously develops and expands on the three previous samples. It’s really interesting to see how characters from each sample resonate onto this whisky but with so much more character coming into the final product.
More from Yamazaki
Awful, awful stuff. Baby sick top notes, palate is like eating pencil shavings. Note the great comments in 2014 upon release, this is where NAS whiskies can lead, gradual batch changes resulting in young, hot, poor quality whisky over time.
Absolutely beautiful took this wiskey home from Japan. Its rich and fruity lovely nose of vanilla fruity raisins touch of oak.
What is not to like about Yamazaki? It suits every occasion, from an epic summery highball to a slow winter's evening dram with ice. Smooth, distinctive and not too heavy. I have just bought the 12 to try next as it was so good. I am sure it will compliment the end-times we are all facing perfectly!
It is very good, best whiskey I have tried in a while!!!
