Yamazaki single malt whisky aged approximately 10 years in 480 litre American oak Puncheons stored in warehouses in the mist-shrouded Yamazaki region. These stout casks mature the whisky slowly due to a relatively small surface area being in contact with the whisky. Bottled without chill filtration.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/09/2012


(Bottled 2011, released October 2012) Clear, pale golden.


Initial aromatic peach quickly overpowered by vanilla, butterscotch, coconut and tarte tatin with delicate gingerbread and roasted pineapple.


Slightly sweet, buttery vanilla pastry, chamois leather and pineapple fruitiness.


Long, slightly sweet with vanilla and celery salt spice.
