Review #791 | /r/WorldWhisky Review #33 – Yamazaki 12yr
The Schtick: This is a 12 year old expression released from the Yamazaki distillery in Japan. Coming to market first in 1984, it was one of the original forerunners of Japanese whiskey.
ABV: 43% ABV
Age: 12 Years
Source: Miniature Bottle
Nose: Buttered pecans, floral, ethanol. There’s loads of apples and pears here.
Taste: Thin to medium mouth feel, some heat. Lots of vanilla, some walnuts. Apples and pears, faint melon, lots of buttery pecan again.
Finish: Short, some heat. Vanilla, creamy tobacco, apples, pears and some oak.
Overall: Nice and sweet but not super complex.
Thanks for reading!
