I first tried the Yamazaki a few years back at my first Whisky Live show, and found it to be such a smooth and enjoyable whisky at the time when i was just getting into the malts. Then i found the 12 year when i went the following year, and that was it for me. The taste is superb, it leaves a wonderful feeling as it glides down the throat, and i have fell in love with it there and then.

I've had the 18yr as well, but although that is one of the best i've had, it doesnt feel as right and as complete as this whisky. To me the 12yr Yamazaki is the perfect age, the perfect colour, and the most wonderful aroma. Now i find nothing better than sitting down with a glass, neat as thats the only way i drink Japanese malts, and a cigar on the go after my first few sips.

This is the one. I see. Thanks. It's now on my "try" list at a bar near me. There is a bar called "Pok Pok" that stocks it.

I wonder if you had a special bottling or if it still tastes as good. The average rating when compared with yours is so low. I will try it and comment. My new reviews will be quite brief. I'm learning to cut them down like yours.
