    "Yamazaki 1993/2006 ‘Private Choice’ (62%, OB, NBA Osaka Kita) A special bottling for the Nippon Bartenders' Association.
    Colour: Gold.
    Nose: Whiffs of dead leaves and cigarette tobacco, pine resin and putty. Let’s not try too hard, at 62% it would be a bit hazardous. With water: resinous and leafy indeed. Obvious notes of game, smoked tea (lapsang souchong), argan oil, putty, fern, moss, mushrooms… and a beautiful peat. Top notch on the nose, compact yet complex.
    Mouth (neat): Rounder than expected, concentrated, certainly peaty. Peated pears and pineapples - should that be possible. This seems to be very, very good but again, let’s not take chances. With water: excellent! Unlike other any Scotch, blending resinous and peaty flavours most wonderfully. Again, hints of tinned pineapples. Finish: long and just a tad tannic – nothing embarrassing here.
    Comments: The NBA know how to select a cask it seems. No wonder… Maybe it’s just a tad too mono-dimensional, but let’s not split hairs.
    SGP:465 – 90 points."
