With Chinese New Years celebrations and gatherings over and done with, I can finally relax with my favorite dram. It’s a cold and foggy night here in Hong Kong, perfect for savoring the Yamazaki 25 I picked up on my tour of the distillery.
Nose: Caramel, toffee, wood varnish
Taste: Nutty, savory, a hint of pepper and grass. Wheat crackers and honey when served with water or ice
Finish: Lavender and mint with subtle Rosemary
Highly recommended if you can get your hands on it. A visit to the distillery to purchase is also very worthwhile.
