Yamazaki Distiller's Reserve

Yamazaki Distiller's Reserve

Official bottling
Single malt - West Honshu
Dark gold
43% ABV

Nose: Raisins, oak, cream, leather, red grapes, hints of musk. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, loosens, spreads out, slightly watery around the edges. 
Tasting:  Bitter sweet. Red grapes, black tea, butter, raisins, hints of butterscotch. 
Finish: Medium. Raisins, black tea, butter, oats. 


A new (at least for me) NAS expression from Yamazaki. Rather fatty and buttery, something I don't often find. Possibly over-sherried as well, with the sweet grapeyness masking a lack of complexity. Lots of raisins, butter, black tea... and not much else. Unfortunately.


Not bad.
