Yamazaki: Frank's New Favorite Single Malt

By Frank at Putting Out the Fire.

I had heard rumors that the Japanese had a few whiskeys that rivaled anything out of Scotland for some time. This weekend I was able to try Yamazaki, a Japanese single malt, for the first time and I’m still trying to wrap my head around how good it was. Yamazaki may just be my new favorite “Scotch” as I don’t recall enjoying a new whiskey as much I enjoyed Yamazaki.

Over the past few years I’ve taken a liking to a peatier smoky flavor in my single malts. While Yamazaki doesn’t have this character as much as I’m used to, the smooth honey sweet palate made me question my fascination with Highland and Islay peat. After the first three sips I actually reached for bottle questioning the alcohol content. I didn’t remember drinking anything that smooth since my last tasting of Macallan 25 a few years back.

If Yamazaki does have one drawback it is the mild finish. This may just a idiosyncrasy of mine alone as I’ve drank single malts with a smoky finish without a changing it up for a bit a variety for some time. Still, Yamazaki has a pleasant and ubër smooth finish and its difficult drink to set down.

Yamazaki may just be the best thing imported from Japan since all those Gojira flicks which entertained me though the long years at the orphanarium. At one time I believed that the only good single malt whisky was of Scottish origin; I now know that is simply not the case.

thank you for the post, I love a good scotch and never thought much of Japanese alcohol outside of sake and the super dry Asahi, thanks again!

There is a really good Canadian single malt called Glen Breton. It's a bit rich (pricewise) for my blood, though.

Hi There. Japanese scotch market sure is growing fast. They are making good whisky. a note on tasting,the Glencairn Glass is likely to be the most useful glass for tasting whisky too. It provides an ever better nosing experience than does a simple wine glass or goblet because the curvature of the glass flutes inward starting from the base to the top enabling more of the aroma being directed towards the whisky tasters nose. It’s also more comfortable to hold while having a decent weighting at the base. The Glencairne glass is also the right size for holding a proper measure of whisky. Remeber, its about quality, not quantity. By the way, we thought you’d be interested to know that the Glencairn Glass is the first style of glass to be endorsed by the whisky industry and members of the SWA (Scotch Whisky Association) and used by every whisky company in Scotland.

Slainte!

First, Kalu is right.

"Whisky." That's the way you spell Scotch and Canadian stuff, and presumably Japanese scotch as well. Americans (bourbon, etc.) and Irishmen produce "whiskey." Even Bushmill's, the libation of us Ulster-Scots.

Secondly, while I have no doubt that this is very good stuff, Scottish scotch is unrivaled. Especially the stuff that costs as much for a shot as it would take to buy a new laptop.

Hmmm...might need to check this stuff out. So far I've stuck to lighter beers from Japan since I know that they do those well.

I'll keep my eye out for this stuff!

Nothing rivals what comes from Scotland, unless you are speaking of Scoresby. As theologians, you need to check out angelsportion.com for the truth on Scotch whisky.
