Yamazaki 10 Bottling Note

A 10 year old single malt from the Yamazaki distillery, aged in bourbon barrels. A lovely fruity dram, quite floral.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is fruity and rich. Plenty of barley malt and caramel, cereal sweetness and winter spice. Vanilla cream and mixed peels with a hint of nuts. The palate is of medium-body with notes of rich peels and winter spice, aniseed and a herbal note. A bitter oak develops. The finish is dry and of good length with acacia honey.

User Reviews of the Yamazaki 10 Year Old

Liquid Gold

Totally fantastic whiskey, favourite.

Amazing Whiskey

I've been to the Yamazaki distillery in Japan, and have tried all of them except for the 25 year. For every day sipping whiskey, I prefer the 10 to the 12 year. Unlike other whiskey's there's a real difference between them. The 10 is a little smoother, while the 12 year is more complex.

It's interesting, because the regular single malt bottle has a deep charred taste from the barrel, that mellows out over time. At 10 years, it's mellowed out as much as it's going to. By 12, it's gained complexity.

At 18 years, it's like nothing else. It seems to change flavor in your mouth for about a minute. Unreal.

So, if you can get it the 10 year is a great in-between whiskey.

Nice Whisky

simply great

First try of Japanese Whisky and it is very promising. 18 yo is the next goal. I highly recommend this as alternative to Scottish standard

Great dram. Buy this before it runs out! Soon to be discontinued! But the 12 year old is even better though... or the 18!

Just bought a bottle First ever bottle of Japanese I've ever bought, looking forward to it

Got a little bit of spice to it, it's smooth too. Would I buy another bottle? Yes. Next purchase Yamazaki 18yrs as it's won awards

Peoples tastes differs, but can only recommend it.

Favourite of mine. Rich honey sweetness with clear malt taste. The word "smooth" is enough to describe.

This is simply put, absolutely beautiful.
My very first purchase of a japanese whiskey
The flavours arrive in waves, i thoroughly recommend this
i have tried the 12 year old, and 18, and boy do they hit the spot
The japanese have nailed the craft of exquisite whiskey's

Expensive mixer

Can only drink this with a mixer, you're better off with an super market own brand.

15th December 2012

Waste of Money!

Why do you stock this stuff? The 12 is just as bad! Anything is better than this!

Beautiful unique Whisky

You know nothing of what you speak. It's your taste that is awful.

Tried this a while ago - foul just about describes it.
Thankfully the supermarket where purchased, exchanged it for something worthy of the price charged.
To date, it's the only single malt I've been so horrified with. Others have been at least drinkable, even if they were too peaty or too spirited for my palette.

Not bad, not great

I found the body lacking in depth, but well-rounded and subtle. Excellent finish yet short-lived. Definitely not a bad choice, but in this price range I'd say with this one you're paying a bit extra for the exotic aspect of the deal.

The best 10YO

Absolute quality! Very complex nose, including plummy bananas or banana plums.
Big&round in the palate, with a lingering fruity/automnal finish. I'd say this is the best whisky in the 10YO range.
