This complex single malt whisky has a dark honey hue and a bold aroma that entwines vanilla and juicy red apple. The silky palate mixes gentle smoke with mouthwatering dry notes—oak, leather and tea, finishing with a smoky exhale accented by orange peel and espresso.
Yamazaki 18 Year Old is an award winning Japanese single malt. This legendary Yamazaki release has been a frequent winner at global awards competitions, including Gold at the 2007 International Spirits Challenge and a Double Gold at the 2005 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The increased recognition and global awareness for this famous release has resulted in diminished supplies while the distillery attempts to ramp up production to meet demand.
This whisky has a rich flavour tasting of mature autumn fruit. Deep amber color. The nose contains notes of vanilla, raisin, apricot, cafe au lait and Mizunara (Japanese Oak). The palate is blackberry, strawberry jam, and dark chocolate. Finish is long, spicy and smooth.
