I like Yamazaki because of its distinct character. It's completely different from Scottish whisky, a lot fresher and more elegant. The 10 y.o. is not as fragrant and fresh as the 12 y.o., which I highly recommend (it tastes of green apples) and not as full-bodied as the 18 y.o. (which tastes more like cherries), but it's still good value!

An outstanding single malt, my favourite 10yo to date.
