‘Yamazaki 12 year Old is a pioneering malt in Japan, for which Suntory deserve great credit. In its early days, it was rounded and delicate…now it is more intense, confident and elegant. 8/10’ Michael Jackson, Whisky Magazine, Oct 2002 Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt Nose: Good body with plenty of nut oils and zest, a pleasant floral character with a little tropical fruit and a rooty note. Palate: Smooth and soft with good sweetness and winter spice. A lovely citrus note develops with more tropical fruit notes and a little rum. Finish: Medium with fruit and zest.
