Released in 2009 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Yamazaki brand, 1984 was the first year they began to produce Yamazaki as a single malt and not just for blending. Bottled at 96 proof, this ages in the trio of barrels which is standard for Yamazaki; European ex-sherry, American ex-bourbon, and Japanese Mizunara oak with the latter comprising a great percentage of the vatting.

Tasting Notes

"Fragrant with dark baking spices, incense, dark dried berries, and a dash of vanilla bean. These are the flavors that haunt my memories in the best possible way."
