    The first cask stored at the Yamazaki soon after distilling started their in 1923 was a 480 litre Spanish oak Oloroso sherry cask and this single malt is similarly aged in such a cask. Suntory buy the casks in Spain where they are filled with Oloroso sherry and seasoned with the wine for 3 years.

    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 29/09/2012

    Appearance

    (Bottled 2012, released October 2012) Clear, deep teak with burnished bronze highlights.

    Aroma

    Blackened raisony burnt fruit cake, dried chocolate, vinous amontillado sherry and subtle clove spice. Faint mint jelly and quince jam.

    Taste

    Heavy and bitter sweet with robust but not overly tannic or dry old oak, Christmas pudding, prunes, figs and burnt toffee.

    Aftertaste

    Long, burnt dried burnt and lingering mint jelly freshness. Unlike many other sherry whiskies, this takes a splash of water well.
