Josh,
Great drinking whiskey
 
Jessiah
Jessiah,
In my personal experience there haven’t been many $400+ bottles I’ve bought that really made me feel like I got my money’s worth. The Yamazaki 18 has definitely exceeded that mark in every way. This is a must have, an amazing experience.

Lee,
Really masterful. Long finish, complex, smooth as can be with nice body. Really explodes in your mouth. Beautiful. My favorite.

Rebekah,
This is one of my favorite bottles I've purchased. Incredible depth of flavor, wonderfully balanced and smooth all the way down. The smoke is very mellow, there's a strong oaky background to balance out the sweetness, which is bold but not overpowering. Lots of complexity that I'm not skilled enough to decipher but can absolutely enjoy! I tend to really love total smoke bombs, and was surprised by how much I loved this whiskey since the smokey/peatyness isn't at all in your face.

Outstanding but when you consider value for money the 12-year takes it every time

Patrick,
Silky. Dates and raisins. Soft oak. Very well rounded.

Lovely but not the best
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Love this. Incredible. One of the best whiskies I've tasted. Smoother than water and not in-your-face sweet like many sherry finished drams these days.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Very balanced creamy sweet with a tiny hint of smoked oak on the finish. Currently using it as my celebration whiskey. Wish it was easier to get my hands on a bottle.
 
Adrian

One of my favourites.

Aaron,
Long sweet finish with a sharp oak hint on the back.

Bryan,
Very mild balance of fruit and creamy flavors. Worth every penny to fly to Japan for a bottle.

Amazing. No alcohol on the nose at all. Sweet smelling, apricots. Taste was mind blowing. Smoothest whiskey I've ever had, sweet, big sherry notes, dried fruits, dark chocolates. Long think finish. Pleasantly stays on the tongue.
