Bottled with 43% vol. and sold for a for Japanese whisky nowadays very reasonably price of around 65€.
- Nose: Honey melon, red berries, Katjes Tropenfrüchte - gummies with tropical fruit flavor, green grass, Sherry (PX'ish)
- Nose: Light oak, grassy, malt and berries
- Finish: Malt, fruits, sugar syrup, sherry, a moderate amount of oak, not overly long
Comment: A lovely NAS Yamazaki, rather fruity and well integrated all around. Maybe here and there a hint of harshness of some younger whisky shimmers trough. The for Yamazaki very unusual Port cask is very well integrated. While it works very well at 43% I think a little bit more wouldn't have harmed.
