'Yamazaki 12 year Old is a pioneering malt in Japan, for which Suntory deserve great credit. In its early days, it was rounded and delicate...now it is more intense, confident and elegant. 8/10' Michael Jackson, Whisky Magazine, Oct 2002.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Maple syrup, white grapes and honeysuckle lead a soft and spicy character.

    Palate: Spice starts, fading beneath caramel, sweet orange and cinnamon toast.

    Finish: Grape skin and pineapple.

  • Tasting Notes for CLASS Magazine

    Appearance - Clear dark golden with burnished gold highlights.

    Aroma - Cinnamon, red apple, muscovado sugar and jasmine blossom.

    Taste - Medium bodied and honeyed in style, this easy vanilla malt bursts with apple fruit and jasmine freshness but is made complex thanks to notes of candied orange peel, cinnamon and clove spice and balancing dusty cigarette ash and cedarwood dryness.

    Aftertaste - Woody oxidised pineapple notes linger on the pleasant finish.

    Rating - 4.5/5

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Yamazaki is the first Japanese distillery established 1923. The distillery is situated in the vale of Yamazaki, an area of dense bamboo grooves at the foot of Mt. Tennozan outside Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital and stronghold of traditional Japanese culture.

    The spiced wood arrives first then dried cranberries with a lasting muddle of orange marmalade and honey sweetness.

    Spectacularly smooth and honey-like with a delicious, lingering warm finish. This is magical stuff that slips down all too easily.

    Loved the Caramel and honey notes, almost slightly Christmas cakey, which is fine by me. Extremely smooth and not like any whisky I’ve tasted before; if I had to find a negative - the girl likes it. It’s my new favourite treat.

    This is one of my favorites! I find it to be one of the smoothest whiskies. The standard.
