A delicious Yamazaki that was aged entirely in first fill bourbon barrels, and it's a limited edition of just 1,000 bottles, exclusively for the UK market.

Tasting Notes (www.masterofmalt.com)

Nose: A perfumy, aromatic nose with lemon zest, heather honey and hazelnut. Hints of cinnamon, rose petal jelly and custard.

Palate: Tropical like the Hakushu, with a predominance of creamy, sweet coconut milk, peach melba, rum spices and toasty oak.

Finish: Allspice, nutmeg and Nutella on the tail.

Tasting Notes (www.timeforwhisky.com)

Nose: Sweet vanilla (as you'd expect being wholly aged in ex-Bourbon barrels), with a slightly hint of spice.

Palate: Wow, sweet. Dessert-like. Honey, vanilla ice cream, big rich creamy notes. Incredible. Really, really incredible.

Finish: Still sweet vanilla ice cream, with honey notes coming in and out. You'd have to call this a "dessert" whisky.

Rating: 95/100. Wow, what a whisky. I don't know which distillery they sourced the barrels from, or how they prepared them...but they did it right. Amazing - one of the best whiskies I've tried. I am going to HAVE to find a bottle of this.
