Yamazaki 25

The Yamazaki 25 is quite a premium bottle and the last of the affordable standard bottlings for Yamazaki with the 35yo and the 50yo being beyond good and evil in pricing.
Bottled at 43% vol.

  • Nose: Sherry, prunes, ripe cherries, oak, honey, sandalwood, whiffs of methanol and mint
  • Mouth: Sherry, chocolate
  • Finish: Dry oak, long, sherry and cherry, quite fruity at the very end, some tobacco and tannins
Comment: Fantastic nose with lots of depth, but the meager 43% really hold the mouth and finish down with both feel a tad weak and watery

88 points
(2013) - but I have no idea from when the bottle was. I think it gets released in batches...
