N- Initial thick cocoa, develop into scent of burning incense wood stick. Dust of spices and ashy, gentle and soothing. Lack the depth to last, turn flat at the tail.

P- Gentle and approachable, chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla and spices. Very "safe" and conservative, balanced.

F- Medium, waxy oak coating, retrained spiciness lingers with touch of brown sugar.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Ohne Frage ein guter Whisky, aber nicht für den aufgerufenen Preis aus meiner Sicht.

Nase: sehr voll und satte Nase für 43%, helle Frucht, etwas Erdbeere, Eichentannine, überlagert durch viel Klebstoff, Kleber bleibt dominant, Sperma (?), Karamellsüße, Schwarztee, Hagebutte, Leder

Geschmack: süß, kräftig, vibrierend auf der Zunge, viel Eiche

Finish: mittel, fruchtig, leichte Süße, Eiche, Klebstoff

Fazit: Ist das ein Blend ? Soviel Klebstoff hatte ich bisher noch in keinem Single Malt. Ich komme mit dem nicht wirklich gut klar, auch wenn er seine interessanten Momente hast. Zuviel Eiche, zuviel Kleber - 84 Punkte

Using all the wrong lines and the wrong signs With the wrong intensity - martin l. gore

Ich hatte vor einem Jahr den 2014er und war begeistert. Dieser hier ist mindestens ebenso gut, vielleicht bilde ich mir ein, dass dieser sogar etwas noch besser ist. Kräftige Vanillenote, sehr fruchtig, keineswegs jung. Da lässt sich Yamazaki nicht lumpen, wenn es um die Limited Editions geht. Freue mich schon auf die 2016 ...

A limited edition of Yamazaki released in 2015.  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 Bourbon barrels.

The strawberry infused nose is fantastic, but the tannins are somewhat overbearing, and while the palate doesn't quite measure up to the nose, it's still very good, with cocoa and cream as counterpoint to the tannins.


This is another Yamazaki that will be well worth holding onto long-term in the hope that the tannins precipitate, like last year's edition.

Another over-hyped Japanese whisky again?

Nose- A hint of citris and fruit

Taste-A mixture of floral and wood

Finish-Disappointing and non-descript

Not for me sorry, and definitely not at this price ( I paid almost 180 Euro)
