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.

Color: Dark amber, dominant raisin and spice in the nose. Oily, bold, powerful flavors that confirmed the raisin and spice, cinnamon, dry fruits (apricot, coconuts, pineapple, etc.), with a very long finish. Comparing side by side with the other two, this is not as complex and finish is not as long. 93 points. #1 was the Hakushu 25 and #2 was Macallan 25. Sorry.

Japan the best for ever

Had at least 2 glasses everyday for about 3 days on my trip to Osaka. It's $60US/glass at the Suntory Museum bar and restaurant, but $200/glass at the Ritz (go to the former).

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. “What is a cynic?

This is a ridiculous JOKE this is !! Stupid and naive collectors out there are responsible for all these ridiculous hypes on all the Japanese bottles...shame on you people..

This is great stuff, and that's not just me saying it. It won best single malt in the world in 2012 (http://www.whiskymag.com/awards/wwa/2012/), and FYI the Karuizawa 40yo is more than 10X the price of this! You got your decimal in the wrong place. Also, keep in mind that Yamazaki was not making as much whisky 25 years ago, and even less of that was Sherry matured. You're paying not just for age, but quality and rarity. Just save up more, as the previous reviewer said.

i agree, but look it is still selling....just earn more money and the price will seem lower

Too expensive for a 25 yo! The Karuizawa 40 yo costs less.
