Yamazaki Distillery
Suntory Yamazaki 12 year old 43%

Age: 10-12 yrs
ABV: 43
Bottle size: 70
Primary Cask: American oak
Sorry, currently out of stock

Re- Tasted: June 2014
Full, dense and honeyed aromas. Quite sweet with tropical fruit – apple, banana, apricot and gristy barley. There is a good dollop of American oak. I would guess both first and refill with a little sappy, grainy Mizuna oak. A slight sherry richness can be discerned with a touch of coffee, milk chocolate and gentle earthy peat interwoven.

The palate is full and soft with the creamy American oak up first followed by honey, apricot, melon and banana. Seriously luscious, juicy and exuberantly fruity. The chocolaty wood tannins, light resin and light spices arrive on the middle along with some rich, sherried notes. Very long and juicy with the sweet oak and sweet-ish fruit lingering.
