Yamazaki Limited Edition 2016 43%abv

IMG_3975Nose: Raisins, figs, toffee, oak, cloves, cinnamon, custard apple, pepper, ginger bread, marmalade. A real pleasure to nose! Palate: Salt, cloves, marmalade, mixed nuts, candied nuts, toffee, Arnott’s savory shapes biscuits, raisins, figs. Very well balanced.
A bit of a let down after the nose and palate as it is fairly short. May be down to the 43%abv?
Last Word: Loses points for the weakish finish, but still the best of the Yamazaki Limited Editions of the 3 released so far in my opinion and really is a pleasure to nose and taste.

  1. Great review!! How does it compare to Yamazaki 18? Would you get a bottle of Yamazaki 18 or two bottles of this? I love the Yamazaki 18 but haven’t tried LE 2016. I had 2014 and 2015 and love them both. I do think 18 has more complexity but then again… the price is ridiculous nowadays…
