Nose

Nez assez boisé au premier abord.

Une bonne acidité se dégage aussi. Du citron principalement.

Plus surprenant un côté floral est aussi présent avec une petite dose de violette.

De la menthe est aussi présente. C'est frais.

C'est plutôt pêchu pour 43%.

A l'aération on a un peu d'amande fraîche et de cacao. 

Taste

La bouche est acide.

On reste sur le bois, et les agrumes.

C'est assez huileux et mielleux.

Finish

Finale assez courte, assez sucrée sur le miel toute fleur et le citron confit. Du bois vert rend ça un peu piquant et la menthe verte revient pour apporter de la fraîcheur.

Comments

C'est un dram étonnamment complexe.

S'il n'a rien d'extraordinaire il raconte une belle histoire et reste facile à boire. Je préfère le profil du 18 ans.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Fresh, citrus fruits, passion fruits, tropical fruits, touch of sweet vanilla and oak wood, sugar and honey

Taste

Oily and liquorice, fruity like citrus fruits, oranges, mint drops, ginger, spices, peppery

Finish

Long and warm, very smooth

Comments

Very nice - actually pretty good - if it had more abv it would really remind me on some great old owner casks of Yamazaki

This would be a great daily dream if it wasn't so damn expensive (200€ a bottle)... Easy drinking, fresh and fruity. The lower ABV of 43% didn't bother me at all. Since this is so expensive, I'll take Teeling Single Malt or Balblair 1997 as a good alternative for daily dram.

Mann riecht der lecker, stark nach Vanille und extrem nach Sherry. Die Farbe ist dunkel und so schmeckt der auch. Sehr harmonisch, rund im Geschmack. Einfach klasse!

Fresh and fruity with decent wood notes. There is even a little nutty and leathery taste and the subtle sweetness makes it very enjoyable. Good stuff!

A limited edition of Yamazaki released in 2014.  A perfect daily dram.  While this is a No-Age whisky, Suntory has disclosed the whisky consists of 3 types of malt: 20-year-old Yamazaki whiskies aged in sherry casks; 20-year-old Yamazaki whiskies aged in ex-port casks; and a younger Yamazaki malt matured in American oak casks.

A fancy bottle like 1984 vintage uses of some old rare malt (port casks from yamazaki!), all at a reasonable price.
