山崎 Yamazaki-1984-25 year old
Bottled 2009 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Yamazaki Single Malt.
Bottle number 949 of 2500. Cask, Mizunara. In wooden presentation case. Good label. Level: into neck. "...Superb nose for sure, extremely appealing. Yes, sexy. With water: even more complexity, with some pipe tobacco this time, mushrooms, honey, maybe a little saltpetre... Perfect! Mouth (neat): luscious, as they say. Rich, candied, citrusy, nervous, spicy, herbal... It's a very 'wide' profile. The spicy oakiness is also a tad more obvious than in the 1986s, with more cinnamon, but all good. With water: changes quite a lot, becoming unexpectedly medicinal. Quite some cough syrup in this one, mint and liquorice... Finish: long, reminding me of some honeydew. Pine sap and white pepper the aftertaste." (5 Stars-Whiskyfun)
700ml. Single Malt., 48% volume.

    「......酒香絕對超卓,非常迷人。是的,性感。加水:更複雜,這次有一些煙斗煙絲香、蘑菇、蜂蜜、也許還有點硝石味......完美!口味(淨飲):如他們所說的甜美。豐富、蜜餞味、柑橘味、緊湊、辛辣、香草味......內涵十分『寬廣』。帶辛辣的橡樹味也比1986年的出品更明顯些,肉桂味更重,但都很好。加水喝:變化挺大,引出意料之外的藥味,有挺多的咳藥水、薄荷和甘草......。收結:悠長,有點蜜露味,餘味有松樹液和白胡椒。」( Whiskyfun:5星)
