Yamazaki 25 Year
Yamazaki // Japan
Only 12,000 bottles of this rare Japanese single malt are produced each year. After enjoying a long and slow maturation of 25 years exclusively in sherry butts, it is bottled at 43% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"The nose is exceptional. Dried figs, peaches, apples and walnuts. Aromas of old oak, roasted almonds, and rich sherry join the fruit. The mouth-coating, rich mouthfeel allows the fruit notes to escalate, as the presence of cinnamon and winter spice becomes evident. The finish is long, rich and oily, with hints of dark chocolate, licorice, and sweet, aged plums throughout."
