Product description

A Japanese single malt whisky, The Yamazaki 12 Year is known for its "noble" aroma. It hails from Kyoto, the capital of ancient Japan, which takes its nobility status up a notch or two. The Yamazaki 12 Year is considered the nation's premier single malt whisky, but it's safe to say that whisky fans around the globe appreciate this award-winning spirit. Since 1984, The Yamazaki Distillery has produced its Single Malt 12 Year. Its mash bill boasts 100 percent malted barley, and its cask-aged in The Yamazaki Distillery for 12 years before being bottled and arriving at your front door. So how does it Taste? This golden whisky boasts complex aromas and superior drinkability. The nose features hints of fruit, including peach, grapefruit, pineapple and candied orange, along with spices such as clove and orange. This whisky also has notes of rich coconut and tart cranberry, while the long finish features spicy ginger and cinnamon. This is a whisky made for savoring. Try it straight, served in a tulip glass or drink it on the rocks, poured over a whisky stone. If you're looking for something bubbly, mix it with club soda to add a hint of brightness to its mellow character and to bring out its oakiness. Or mix it one-part whisky with two parts water for a chilled-out finish to your day.

Drizly's take

A single malt whisky from Japan's first and oldest distillery, Yamazaki® 12 Year Old Whisky is a succulent drink. Expert brewers in Japan ferment this liquor for longer than usual in wooden casks for an extra-creamy texture. This Japanese single malt whisky has a full-bodied mouthfeel and pours a rich, golden color. It has bright, fruity aromas of peach, pineapple and grapefruit with hints of vanilla and mizunara (Japanese oak). Aged in a combination of American, Spanish and Japanese oak barrels, this Yamazaki whisky has complex flavor notes with apricot jam, vanilla and berry. Mild undertones of cranberry, butter and coconut lend more depth.

Enjoy a relaxed evening with a glass of this Yamazaki single malt, served neat over ice. For those who love a little fizz to their drink, top it with some club soda to add a refreshing twist and highlight the oakiness of the liquor.
