Yamazaki 12 Year Old was introduced to the market in 1984 and was the first seriously marketed Japanese single malt whisky. By now, it is an internationally coveted whisky, winning award after award, and having been named by Jim Murray as being the best whisky in the world.
Succulent with soft fruit.
|Type||Single Malt Whisky|
This Chita Single Grain Whisky was made with diverse unblended whisky brewing techniques and master craftsmanship developed over many years at the Chita Distillery in Aichi Prefecture. It features a light taste and delicately sweet fragrance.
Colour: pale gold, ripe corn.
On the nose: lovely fresh, tropical sweetness to this. Mango juice. Lemon meringue pie. Then comes the normal syrupy sweetness one associates with grain. Solvent, fizzy sweets – Love Hearts. Sticky toffee pudding.
In the mouth: excellent chewy yet light texture. It’s like eating dessert out on the porch in the summer sun. All of the nose comes through cleanly: again, tropical juices, almost like some mango-based cocktail. Limes. Grappa. And then come the sugars: light honey. Gentle wood spices drawn out for the finish, with just the slightest hint of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.
