Color: Dark Amber

Nose: Oak, dried fruit, Sherry. Wow! a very attractive nose. The extra 6 years did their magic in terms of intensity of the fruit and the aromas. After some time, Sultanas dipped in liquor. Wonderful.

Palate: vanilla at first is noticeable, as well as Oak and sweet sherry.Dried fruits galore ( Sultanas, Dates). Some Demerara sugar cane and spices. Complex. Very Complex.

Finish: Woodiness (Oak), Distant smoke (but stronger than the 12 year old), spice and pepper going all the way. A long finish, text book long finish. Ace!

This is top of my wish list. I’m going on holiday next month and will buy a bottle duty free. You know I’m almost looking forward to it more than the holiday.

Big fan of the younger Yamazaki malts, so when i had the money earlier this year the 18yr was my first stop! Beautiful whisky, and a fitting review!
