Yamazaki 12 yr

Yamazaki is Suntory’s flagship single malt, multi-layered with fruit and Mizunara aroma.

The Yamazaki 12 year is the entry level whisky in the range.

They say:

Nose: peach, pineapple, grapefruit,clove, candied orange, vanilla, Mizunara (Japanese oak)

Palate: coconut, cranberry, butter

Finish: sweet ginger, cinnamon, long finish

I say:

Nose: sherry, raisin, tobacco – 8/10

Palate: oak, pepper, apricot – 9/10

Finish: dry, long and malty- 3/5

Served: neat with a dash of water

My rating: 21/25

The difference in tasting notes between the distillery and myself clearly show the complexity and range of flavours in this magnificent whisky. The Yamazaki 12 year has won multiple awards and acclaim from whisky enthusiasts all around the world, and rightly so as this is a magnificent dram. I highly recommend enjoying it after a meal neat, with a drop or two of water.
