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.

  1. It really makes jealous.
    There is no released sign this year in Japan. I look forward to every year ...

  5. I'm trying to get my hands on the 2014 version but I can't find it in Tokyo anywhere (I live in the Nishi-azabu area). Any suggestions? Thanks
