Yamazaki Sherry Cask - NAS (2013)

This years (2013) edition of the much beloved Yamazaki Sherry cask. Bottled at 48% vol. with no age statement and dark Oloroso sherry color. Usually sold out pretty quick.

  • Nose: Oloroso sherry, a touch mint, some light oak and grass, prunes, umeboshi
  • Mouth: Sherry, thick and creamy, water brings out quite a bit of oiliness, cherry with berries marmalade
  • Finish: Warm, sherry, red grape juice, some light oak and bark
Comment: A flawless straightforward sherry beast. A few drops water work pretty well. Although the price increased over previous installments it is still very good value.
