The nose is a delightful bouquet of desserts and floral goodness. My first impression is strong custard, cookies and butterscotch. Mixed in with that are tiny rose petals sprayed with lavender mist. One of the most unique and floral noses you will ever come across. The palate is quite dry and unassuming. It doesn't deliver with aplomb as it should! (Maybe it needs a few more ABVs but I think I've just developed a taste for the stronger stuff!) There is honey and toffee tossed in hay and pencil shavings. The late cinnamon and nutmeg bring on the spice. The finish is satisfyingly long!]

I still want to see this as a 48% as opposed to the 43% it currently is. But what do I know?

Thanks for a good review. Like you, I also perceive this as dry. I like dry.

The most distinct nose and palate flavour I always associate with Yamazaki 12 is BANANAS! ...I like bananas, too!
