Whisky Reviews for Yamazaki 10-year-old

Very floral. Reminds me of the Hibiki Japanese Harmony.
A lot of vanilla. Very sweet on the tongue.
Flowery again on the finish.
- Tasting Notes:
Pear, pineapple, banana, citrus, raisins, roses, perfume, touch of glue, toffee and chocolate
Greasy, cherry, light pepper, oriental spices, brown sugar, dried fruit, chocolate, liquorice and orange
Medium, sweet fruit, chocolate touch of pepper and citrus zest
- It's not a bad, but a very weak whisky at 40%.
I found that to be ok with the nose, which is decently complex and balanced, but everything else is just a bit bland and meaningless...
A very candied fruitiness with apples, bananas, sultanas, passionfruit, mango, very zesty citrus, some cider,
lots of caramel and vanilla, cream, custard,
herbal with lavender, sage and rosemary, cherry blossoms,
mildly soapy and gluey(in a good way), matcha tea(dry), aloe vera, engine oil and a bit of waxiness/honey,
rye bread, hints of european oak coming through, spicy, coffee, mint, cinnamon, cardamom, peppercorn, curry, some sandalwood
with time there's some beefstock and other more savory notes aswell
with water: matchbox, parsley, candied ginger, more fruitcake, gingerbread, salted liquorice
balanced in taste, but very timid and very thin, ginger, honeyed sweetness, dates, apples, marzipan and vanilla midpalate
with water: even thinner, more ginger
very weak finish, medium length, dates again, raisins, fanta, caramelised orange and lemon, bit of woodsmoke, dying whispers of matcha tea and coffee
- The 10s I find disappointing weak. Nobody has taste and power and depth not synonymous. You can draw a long finish. I got this bottle as a present. Returning would be rude, so should drink my rare guests, or the poker club. They do not understand it anyway. The price is grotesque, as expensive as a Bunnahabhain 18yr. (Which is really good). Even against the 12yr. he never gets it. On Neudeutsch: The weak as Kollega with car have less horsepower than yours. Krass expensive for crass tote pants. Have fun until it is flat. The puke because of bad, nothing because of alcohol, man. Fully crass. That no enf .. Emfff ..- emf ... my husband's recommendation. The swill for Füxe.
