Similar to previous editions, the Yamazaki Limited Edition 2016 is composed of three single malts, a single malt aged 20 years in sherry casks were used for maturating red wines, another single malt aged 20 years in port wine casks made out of European oak previously used for maturing port wines and a young single malt aged in bourbon barrels made out of American white oak.
Nose: Dried dark raisins, freshly baked bread, white oats, crisp green alfalfa, banana, red dates, refreshing sweet mint.
Palate: Caramelised brown sugar, toffee nut, clotted vanilla cream, light peat. When washed down, it excites you with a tinge of bourbon.
Finish: Medium. Smooth, mellow and sweet aftertaste balanced with sherry tannin.
Overall: Stronger sherry notes as compared to the 2015 Limited Edition. We absolutely enjoyed this complex yet well-balanced whisky. From the nose to the palate, you are taken on an adventure of scents and tastes, and the finish wraps it up perfectly. If you are a sherry head... you will fall in love again with this whisky!
