Review of Yamazaki 25 Years

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.
