I kinda expected more from this, though it was an okay dram. Yamazaki 18 yrs, though with a different kind of palate, had given a great introduction to Yamazaki, so 12YO was a bit disappointing.

Suntory Yamazaki 12 yrs is still a nice, surprisingly heavy whisky for its palate and ABV level. That's always a good thing in my book. I couldn't come up with a better movie reference but I'm going to call this one "The Heat".

"The Heat" because it packs tropical fruits in a teeth kicking and warming palate, like girl energy that Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy offer in their flick.

Nose: Warming cinnamon with heavy floral notes and zesty tropical fruits.

Taste: Medium body. Fresh citrus notes with vanilla and caramel.

Finish: Medium length, fruity and bit stingy. Pineapples and oak.

Balance: Smoothly in balance but feels strong still. Heavy stuff in a smooth package!
