Yamazaki – 12 years old

Rating: 80-100 out of 10

Pretty aromas on the nose: eucalyptus, pear, green apple, slightly spirity (but only in the beginning). Continues with caramel, fudge, bayleaf and even a hint of coconut. Very nice nose.

Taste: sweet and a little bit savory. Continues with more bitter notes. Nice malty flavours, and also faint spicy notes in the form of allspice (piment) and cinnamon. Also something faintly oily.

Finish: Very nice. Long and warming, and relatively bitter. Also some honey.

Overall: a very nice
