Yamazaki 25 Year Old Reviews

Intense yet elegant aromas and flavours that pushed me to search out a bottle of my own

I was invited to a dinner with a small group of wine nerds. One of them brought a sealed bottle of Yamazaki 25 to finish off the meal. Needless to say, the 10 of us finished his Yamazaki 25. The aroma was so overpowering that one person from the adjacent room came over to ask what we had opened. The flavours were so intense, yet elegant, and the finish, though not the longest, was more than satisfying. I managed to locate a bottle within two weeks, which I have now hidden away, awaiting the right occasion and friends.

The #3 rank dram out of 3

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 in Osaka

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).

Amazing whiskey

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).

The Dowry

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.

Absolutely sublime whisky!

One of the best whiskys I've ever tried!

Have you tried it?

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.
