The entry level bottle of the Yamazaki line. (but I just read there will be a NAS introduced soon for Yamazaki as well as for Hakushu which probably will be younger) The 10yo only comes bottled at 40% vol. in comparison to its older brothers at 43%.
- Nose: Malaga raisins flowery, a tad alcoholic
- Mouth: very soft, flowery, grass, slightly sweet
- Finish: Light, fruity, Apple, short
Comments: It really suffers a bit from the low % vol. I think it would win a lot from 43% or higher. But as it is it just feels a bit too weak. It is very accessible and smooth thou and would be a good beginners dram.
