Item Description

Yamazaki is Suntory's flagship single malt whisky, from Japan's first and oldest malt distillery. This 12 year old first came onto the market in 1984 and was the first seriously marketed Japanese single malt whisky. Since then, it has acquired something of a cult following, and for good reason! A wonderfully elegant and smooth single malt that’s certainly not lacking in flavour.
 

It has won a number of awards over the years, such as:
International Spirits Challenge Good winner - 2003, 2010
San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SWSC) Double Gold - 2009, 2013
SWSC Gold - 2014
International Wine and Spirit Competition Gold (Best in class) - 2011

Tasting notes:

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.
