A wonderful example of what Japanese whisky is capable of. We absolutely love this. Extremely smooth, with great complexity and a lovely balance of fruit, silky malt and a touch of smoke.

Suntory Yamazaki 18 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Yamazaki 18yo is the multi award winning whisky. It is proudly awarded SWSC Double Gold Medal in 2005, IWSC Trophy in 2006 and ISC Gold in 2007.

    The richness of sherry and raisins fill the nose then its dark rich maraschino cherries and finally coffee cream chocolate appear. Full body malt.

  • Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    This one was matured in sherry casks. The nose is very woody, in a nice way, with some varnish, turpentine. A beautiful balance. Some very soft tannins… Extremely oaky but masterfully crafted. The mouth is superbly balanced, with lots of orange juice and spices. Creamy yet nervous, with all sorts of fruit syrups and jams. Besides, the finish is very long. I loved this one: 90 points.

    Quite possibly the finest example of what whiskey can be smooth full of flavour and rounded and soft on the palate. As I am normally a dedicated Rum drinker this was a delight to sample the other day and has left a lasting impression.

    Absolutely super smooth single malt whiskey from Japan had a chance to try it only once like pure nectar with soft tunes of music going down your throat hope to get some more in the future

    On the nose this has lots of burnt lemon like its been charred on a BBQ with some sweet sherry raisin and a touch of pepper. On the palette is more burnt citrus fruit, but more like orange this time with some complex molasses and spice flavours on the finish. Some aniseed, cinnamon and nutmeg lingers on the finish. An absolute belter of a whisky. Worth the punt if you can split the cost and share a bottle between some good friends.
