Suntory Single Malt Whisky Yamazaki 25 Years Old

Suntory Single Malt Whisky Yamazaki 25 Years Old

Best Japanese Single Malt 21 Years and Over 2015

Moist fruitcake, walnuts and sweet, sweet sherry on the nose. With time it becomes a little bitter with over stewed coffee notes appearing.

Sweet and treacly palate, just like a mouthful of Pedro Ximinez sherry.

Clean, sweet, grapey and luscious with plenty of dried plum and raisin. It becomes a little rum-like on the middle and speckled with wood spice. Long and soft finish with the sweet, coffeed, treacly sherry.

Best Japanese Single Malt 2014

Dark and musty wood. Exotic spice in perfect balance with full and malt and a buttery mouth. Great extended finish. Joseph Cassidy

Perfumed, precious wood, dark chocolate. Heavy. Very rich palate. A little dustiness comes through on the finish. Tim Forbes

Thick treacle sponge, juicy orange segments and cherries covered in chocolate. Jason Thomson

Moist fruit cake, walnuts and sweet sherry. Hints of toasted spice. The palate is sweet and treacly, just like a mouthful of PX Sherry. Clean, sweet, grapey and luscious with plenty of dried plum and raisin. Chris Goodrum

Seasoned wood, trees and very foresty. Is it a freight train that delivers sherry? There’s so much power and flavour for 43% ABV! Cat Spencer
