Suntory Yamazaki 10 Year old

A Tasty Dram Whisky Review & Tasting Notes

Kohai on a mission 

Color: Soft amber.

Nose: At first green apples, vanilla and oak. Adding water releases fruity flavours: grapes, pineapple and a small touch of banana. It 's all combining very well with a hint of cinnamon.

Taste: I'm getting (again) green apple with some spices, ginger and oak. Water softens the apple and adds some unripe bananas and grapes. It even gets a little 'nutty'.

Finish: The spices warm your mouth for quite a while. There's some caramelized brown sugar that lingers in the back.

 Conclusion: A young whisky that shows already some character with his fruity flavours. This 10 year old is getting rare.
