Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Peaty (sooty) yet fragrant, solid but pretty (it's young). As it opens there's vanilla, syrup/barley sugar and in the background some orange and a wood fire, the memory of bubbling sap.
Palate: A dry start, then opal fruit sweetness, then smoke and that attractive sappy quality.
Finish: Slightly hot. The youth shows.
Comment: A good addition to the range, maybe just a little young.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Vanilla. Fresh oak. Earthy. Pine cones on the forest floor. Ferny.
Palate: Toast. Bean curd. Walnut. Dry. Drying. Strong flavours.
Finish: Lean but limber. A muscular punch. Bourbon-like.
Comment: The Yamazaki I know well; but with a more obvious and robust hint of bourbon character.
