“For relaxing times, make it Suntory time”… So true Bill Murray, so true. Suntory distillery’s Yamazaki 12 year makes it really easy to have a relaxing time. You might as well put a kilt on this bad boy because its Speyside similarities are undeniable.
This will be good for anyone just getting into whiskey, and somewhat of a guilty pleasure that never disappoints for the established palettes. It should set you back about $40. Here’s the breakdown:
- Appearance – golden in color, similar to apple juice or cider
- Nose – definitely a big sweet nose, fruity and honey notes
- Taste – medium body, sweet honey taste with a spicy/dry finish
- Aftertaste – even though there was no smoke to the taste there’s a lingering smoky cigar-like aftertaste in your mouth (in a good way).
