Yamazaki 25 Year Old
Strictly 1 Per Customer
Yamazaki's astonishing 25 year old, aged in the finest Sherry casks for the entire maturation period to produce a fragrant, sherried, fruity, oaky masterpiece. Yummers.
Absolutely sublime whisky!
I had a chance to try this a few times on trips to Japan. This is an absolutely fantastic whiskey. The nose on it alone was worth the price (though I've never purchased an entire bottle).

Upon the recommendation of a friend I bought this whiskey as a sort of Dowry for my new father-in-law. Bought it in July and waiting until December to try it.
I'm a Kiwi, with all my ancestry tracing from Dundee, so I like my Scotch. Talisker has always been a favourite of mine, and this 25 in my books compares in quality to the Talisker 10. Thats sounding a bit disappointed for a $1000 bottle of scotch. Obviously it tastes nothing like the Talisker, its very heavy, you can taste the wood all through it, so much so its gotten a bit of a treacley twang, and lost the sharpness of how you'd expect the woody finish to be.
For such an expensive whiskey, I was maybe expecting a bit more. Or maybe a bit less - of a battering ram of a powerful brew.

One of the best whiskys I've ever tried!

Because if you have, you won't be hating...
The predominant note reminds me of Vinsanto, the mouthfeel is velvety with an almost plum-sweet finish. If there is one word that I can use to describe the layers of flavour it would be "synergy". Absolutely sublime.
