Yamazaki 1999-2012 Puncheon #DQ70030

A seemingly Japan only single cask Yamazaki aged for 13 years in a puncheon cask. Bottled at 58%.

  • Nose: Very bourbon'ish on the first sniff, honey, wax, fresh cut grass, with some water light oak and dry
  • Mouth: Wax, dry, honey
  • Finish: Honey, honey cake, light christmas cake, plenty spices, long
Comment: While the honey is not overly dominant it's always there. Quite enjoyable and it had more depth than I expected.

85 points
