Hello guys, I just found my way on here finally. Its great to be part of another live tasting. Thanks to C57 for the sample making it possible for me to join in
Yamazaki 18 Yo 43% OB Glass: Spiegelau
Nose: Malted sherry, sulphur, cherry liqeur, thick pungent pear drops, touch of caramel.
Taste: Initially sour (?sulpur), then quickly sweetens to reveal sherry notes, and light cherry, small amount of smoke.
Finish: Very thin finish, leaves a slightly pleasent biscuit taste at the back of the mouth.
My first Japanese whisky, a pleasent medium bodied dram, it would be better without the sulpur taste.
