Yamazaki Mizunara 2013 release of Suntory, a no-age statement single malt Japanese whisky which matures in casks made from Mizunara oak. These special casks impart some beautifully unique hints of sandalwood and fragrant aloeswood that make this whisky a truly singular experience.
words of whisky:
Nose: Fresh fruits like red apple and banana peel, followed by subtle notes of sandal wood and cardboard, with a slight waxiness to boot. Hints of juniper and cloves too, as well as some lemon custard.
Taste: Hints of saw dust, but also plenty of citrus notes, such as lemon and apricots, and even some mango. However, this is not as fruity as it may sound. It has a tannic layer too, with a spicy bitterness and earl grey tea.
Finish: Lingering bitterness. Medium in length.
While it is certainly a good whisky (that nose is really attractive), the oak gets a little too much room on the palate. Lots of tannins and a good hit of bitterness.
