Yamazaki 1990 Sherry Cask

Country: Japan
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 60%
Score: 86 points

The nose confirms this malt’s sherry butt cask, with vintage leather, oak, and honey notes, subtle vanilla hints underneath and just a touch of cinnamon. Vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon notes dominate the taste at first, revealing a nice toffee and caramel sweetness that fades on the finish to a slight touch of salt. Nice and complex!
