It is a whisky that is increasingly less available on the market, because of the high demand that the Japanese whiskys are having during the last couple years. Consequently, the price has sustained a major increase.

Tasting notes YAMAZAKI SINGLE MALT 12 yo

Nose: notes of caramel and cereals are the first perceptible, followed by ripe fruits (pear and peach). Lastly, light notes of spices, among which the white pepper stands out, and oak. Elegant and refined.

Palate: it develops notes of spices (white pepper and chili), accompanied by cocoa and caramel. A light touch of ginger completes the aromatic palette.

Finale: medium long persistency. Spicy (still white pepper) and cocoa.

Overall, an elegant whisky, refined and balanced. A good product, even though in the case of this 12 yo, you won’t find the same depth of the aromatic palette that is perceptible in the other, more aged, products of this brand.
