Our tasting notes
A beautifull and strong gold colour.
The heavy peat is coming first with shy hints of citrus and dry fruits in the background.
The intense peat is more salty in the mouth than in the nose and the fruity flavors caracteristics of the Yamazaki single malts, is still present. But you can also find shy notes of cereals due to its lack of maturity.
The texture is round and soft despite the high level of alcohol.
The finale is soft and not too short, not too long, quite average. The peat slowly disappears while the cereals aromas continues till the end.
The Heavily Peated 2013 is a very good peaty single malt which proudly express the Yamazaki's signature. The only two bad points we could find are an availability only in Japan and a price a little bit to expensive for a non aged version.
