Pioneer of the first-class Japanese Whisky. The Yamazaki 12 Years was awarded Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2013. While for the ones, it's a mild and elegant drink, for the others, it shows depth and a smooth character. Anyway, the The Yamazaki 12 Years is one of the best recommendations in the world of whiskies. And you'll best enjoy this Premier Single Malt from Kyoto, Japan's former capital, pure, on ice or with soda water. It seems a little bit too good for cocktails.
Description of The Yamazaki 12 Year old
The Yamazaki 12 Year old
- Colour: The Yamazaki 12 Years shows a clear dark golden colour with burnished bright highlights.
- Flavor: Aromatic notes of cedar, golden honey, clove and candied orange peel.
- Taste: Medium bodied and honeyed in style, this easy vanilla malt bursts with apple fruit and jasmine freshness but is made complex thanks to notes of candied orange peel, cinnamon and clove spice and balancing dusty cigarette ash and cedarwood dryness.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: After aging for 12 years in Japan's unique environment - the constant changes in temperature and humidity force the wood and whisky to interact with each other - the whisky is brought to proof before being bottled.
ALCOHOL: 43% Vol.
