Yamazaki 12 Year Old
- Distillery: Yamazaki
Introduced in the market at 1984. Probably the first seriously marketed whisky outside Japan.
Aroma: first impression- spirity, bit bitter. Give it some time to breath. Nice hints of smoke and oak comes quickly. Also peppermint and ripe apples, citrus fruits. Peanuts and anisee seeds. Lollipops from the childhood with vanilla notes.
The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
