Yamazaki Bourbon Barrel

by Oliver Klimek on May 22, 2012


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Apples, banana, hints of mango, vanilla, freshly cut wood, ginger, a whiff of mixed flowers.
Palate: Fried banana with honey, apples, pears, vanilla, treacle, candied ginger and hints of pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: A thoroughly enjoyable Japanese whisky with a very good balance of flavours, both complex and approachable at the same time.

Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
