Suntory "Yamazaki", 12 year old 43% Single Malt Whisky
The vale of Yamazaki at Tennozan Mountain on the outskirts of Kyoto was the birthplace of Japanese whisky. The malt whisky produced at this Yamazaki Distillery, with a tradition dating back to 1923, has slept through a long cycle of Japan's colourful seasons, the brighness of Spring, the luxuriant green of Summer, the vermilion foliage of Autumn and the white blanket of Winter.
Pure Malt Whisky "Yamazaki" uses only 100% malt Whiskies at least 12 years old,
Radiant and noble, its flavor is full-bodied and mellow, and the distinctive woody taste of mature malt induces a pleasant, lingering aftertaste.
We suggest that you first try it straight.
Nose: Fragrant Cedar wood, golden honey, spiced cloves and candied orange peel
Palate: The spiced wood arrives first then dried cranberries with a lasting muddle of orange marmalade and honey sweetness.
Finish; Long lasting with woody overtones.
