Yamazaki 2000 Whisky Shop W. 3rd. Aniv. #EO70049

An anniversary bottling for the Suntory W. Whisky Shop in Osaka. Aged in Spanish sherry butts for 13 years and bottled with 59% vol. You can read a bit more about the bottling on Nonjatta.

  • Nose: Very light smoke with tons of sherry, some glue, oak and a bit walnut. With water you get oranges, prunes and some mint.
  • Mouth: light oak, clean oloroso sherry
  • Finish: Sherry, warm and oily, quite a long finish with oak and other woods at the very end

Comment: Almost as usual an excellent sherry Yamazaki that tastes older than it is.

90 points
