Yamazaki 12 Year / Single Malt Japanese Whiskey
jap / 86 proof / 750 ml
The Suntory whiskies are handcrafted at Japan's oldest distillery, built by the founder of Suntory--Shinjiro Torii--in 1923. This 12 year was awarded a Gold Medal by the Beverage Tasting Institute in 2006. Medium-bodied with scents of dried fruits and honey. Elegant, subtle and mellow on the finish, with woody spice. This is a great introduction to the beautiful complexity of high end Japanese Whiskey, with notes of pineapple, lemon curd, peach blossom and sandalwood, transitioning into a soft spiciness and subtle smoke, as well as a lingering finish that keeps the palate engaged even after the final sip.
