Japanese malts and I have an odd history so far. I’ve had only a few, and one of them turned out to be the best World Whisky I’ve ever reviewed. The others… were over priced for what they were.
So when /u/UncleToby ‘s (Thanks again for the swap mate) offered me a dram of the Yamazaki 12, I had mixed thoughts. On the one hand, it’s recommended, and I’ve made it a personal objective to finish off the Beginner/Advanced drams, hopefully this year.
On the other hand, I have a past with Japanese malts that reads like Old Boy (Not exactly like old boy, mind out of the gutter!). I’m… worried.
Yamazaki is the oldest whisky distiller in Japan. They follow very strict rules and quality requirements when making it. Let’s see if all that was Lost in Translation.
