Yamasaki 12yo (43%, OB)

Many foreign friends told me they were surprised by the quality.  I must admit I've never try it before.  Thus, I bought one in Taiwan, and would send to to other maniacs to see everybody's comment.  Color: Yellow Brown.  Nose: sweet, lot's of flower.  Colore to perfume, very strange.  Some hidden citrus fruit.  Woody.  Palate: buriing,  candy.  robust.  Finish: dry, short.  Score: 75.  For me.  This is an average malt.  Must be better than the suntory blend for sure.  But not exactly like normaly scotch.  I think it would be easy to tell Yamasaki house style if I have the chance to taste more different IBs.  I also think there is a little bit caremel inside. And the woody type would also be a key component.  Seems to be matured in fresh oak cask instead of ex-bourbon or ex-sherry.  Lot's of buring tannins.
