Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets bronze.
  • Nose : franc et précis, il évoque le sherry avec ses notes de pruneau, de noix et de raisin sec. Pâte de fruits (fraise, figue). A l'aération il se révèle plus épicé (cannelle, poivre noir) et médicinal (arnica).
  • Palate : souple à l'attaque, elle devient riche et concentrée sur le sherry (noisette grillée, amande, cacao amer). Véritable corbeille de fruits secs : raisin secs, dattes. Elle devient plus boisée et légèrement amère sur le chêne brûlé et le cachou.
  • Overall : très nette et d'une grande persistance, sur le grain de café, la suie et le chocolat noir.
The brand

The brand

After nearly a century, Yakima perfectly illustrates the integration of whisky into Japanese culture. For its production, Yamazaki uses six types of malted barley with various levels of peat, all from Scotland. It is during the fermentation process that Yamazaki begins to acquire some of its Japanese character. The 10, 12 and 18 year-old releases all have a rich, refined, elegant profile, characterised by the absence of malted notes. With age the initial fruity, vanilla notes are joined by dried fruit, chocolate and oak, all the while continuing to offer tremendous freshness. Find out more
