Distilled May 1979, Bottled September 2008. Distilled and Bottled at Yamazaki Distillery
Bottle number 13 of 294. Cask no. RF1037, Mizunara Cask. In wooden presentation case. Good label. Level: into neck. "...Nose: it's the oak that's rather louder here, not that it's plankish whisky of course but there are rather big notes of black tea, coconut indeed, marzipan, plain wood (newly broken branches), cinnamon and a faint sourness in the background (ale and mead – a lot of mead). With water: it's nice but the oak really shines through now. Damp wood, pencil shavings... It's quite beautiful if you like those notes but it may all be a little excessive. Mouth (neat): excellent fruity attack, rich, wide, creamy, with the oak being rather louder than in the other ones yet again. That translates into more cinnamon and tea as often but on the other hand, it's as citrusy as the 1984. It's even a little acidic, in a very nice way (lemon). Great body at almost 30 years of age!"
