Yamazaki Reserve Bottling Note

Released in Spring 2014, this is one of two Distiller's Reserve single malt whiskies from Suntory in Japan. This single malt from the Yamazaki distillery is jam-packed with superb red berry notes, gained from the whisky being matured in Bordeaux wine casks and Sherry casks. It also features malt matured in Mizunara casks, adding subtle fragrant oak notes.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Classic Yamazaki strawberries and dried fruits with floral notes coming from the Mizunara cask whisky. Fragrant sandalwood and maybe coconut. Certainly a whisky where you could get lost in its nose!

Palate: The dried berries remain lively on the palate (it even develops some raspberry notes along the way), but they're dialled back a bit to make room for light oak, white peach and a small amount of spice.

Finish: Vanilla lasts and lasts, with spicy but sweet cinnamon acting as a final flourish.

Overall: Top quality Japanese whisky, and excellent value too. Can't go wrong with this, really.

Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky - Distiller’s Reserve Reviews

Nice dram

Pleasant drop but far better bottles for the price

This is techno whisky

This whisky is actually quite layered in flavours. It has an interesting delayed after taste of jam and some very odd twists and turns in the middle. Overall though, it's quite odd and almost feels like it shouldn't be whisky. Not for me but was intriguing. I'm glad I just had a sample bottle.

A pleasant glass of whiskey.

A pleasant glass of whiskey, once you get past the initial alcohol burn it has a smooth finish. Quite subtle in flavour, light oak with just a hint of spice.

Perfectly pleasant but lacking complexity for me

A pleasant everyday dram as far as I’m concerned - although I’ll admit to a general preference for peaty offerings over this lighter fair. The berry notes are there, as is the touch of oak, but, in truth, I was expecting greater complexity for the price.

Worth a try

Now that Japan exports more Whisky than soy sauce and any age-stated bottle they put out costs as much as putting a child through college, we poor middle class folks have to play the taste roulette with releases like this. Don't get me wrong, it's good whisky, but it can vary from anywhere between rich citrus goodness to rocket fuel. Come prepared and you might have a good time. If anything else, at least it'll look nice on your shelf.

Beautiful glass

Amazing drink

4th January 2021

No. Never again. Why the price ??? It’s horrible

I might run my car on it but as for drinking I’ve had less harsh blended shit.
A disappointing disaster. One sip had me done. No more thanks.
I’m a whiskey drinker. This is ain’t whiskey.

A smooth option

Smooth and fruity, with a delicious depth and pleasant warmth. A great easy drinker

Depth

Wasn’t blown away, but certainly had depth and warmth. Worth a second endeavour.
