Yamazaki 18 yr. old, Japanese single malt.
colour: rusted amber.
nose: malty, vanilla, fruity- apples, apricots, peach, grape, some oak, soft leather, sweet, gentle yet full nose, lovely, I could nose this whisky all day.
palate/mouth feel: some sweetness, good tongue buzz developes.
finish: malty, oak, vanilla, big fruit flavours roll in, nice mouth buzz, some sweetness, soft leather/earthy background, gentle yet full flavoured, well balanced, long finish.
notes: wow what a nose, lovely, soft yet full, good mouth buzz, big flavours roll in like waves on the finish. The oak is present but not overwhelming brings good structure to this well balanced whisky. Very nice &  big thumbs up! Pricey but well worth the try. I wish more Japanes malts were available here.
