Travel Exclusive Week: Day 6
We have a bonus episode and a great whisky to end with.
The Yamazaki Distiller's Reserve is a single malt Japanese whisky exclusive to Japan (I believe?). It's a no age statement whisky aged in Bordeaux wine and sherry casks. The malt is matured in Japanese Mizunara oak as well. Bottled at 43% abv.
Let me just say, this is like a masterful work of art. It's so beautifully balanced and complex, regardless of it not showing an age statement, it is a treat to experience!
I'm hoping my friends can help me track down a full sized bottle of this as it currently ranks as my favorite Japanese whisky.
Color: Medium with hues of red from the wine casks.
Nose: Sweetened fruits followed by floral bouquet
Palate: Definitely sweetened fruits and berry which slowly evolves across the tongue that finishes with dark chocolate
This is a dream dram. If you ever have the chance to buy this one, don't think twice. Buy it!
BTW: Thank you to Blackout Coffee for helping me get through this long week of videos. Seriously appreciative of the great coffee and company they have.
Watch my solo review of The Yamazaki Distillers Reserve below:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
