This is the whisky that began my journey of single malts. For years I've drank the regulars: JW Black Label,Pinch, Glenlivet 12, Glenfiddich 12,etc. When I was first introduced to The Yamazaki 12, it was " love at first dram."WOW! Rich,sweet honey,med body, oak,balanced. They use 3 types of casks: Spanish Sherry,American oak,Japanese oak. After that I began my search for different Single malts to compare them to this one. Especially the Speyside single malts,since they're the closest profile The Yamazaki resembles. But yet, The Yamazaki has its own unique character. You wont be disappointed. Suntory distillery received the prestigious title of 2013 distillery of the year by the San Francisco Spirits Competition.
