Yamazaki 25yrs old bottled 1998

I have a bottle of yamazaki 25 down to about 3 or 4 drinks left in it. I just back from japan 2 days ago I was hopeing to replace my bottle while over there. I checked 3 or 4 department stores with no luck. Tried hazegawa liquors in Tokyo as well with no luck got told there they would be back in next month. Didn't help me tho as im not back there to july.
If you read around on the internet you will find a lot of people saying that yamazaki 25 is just to old for a yamazaki whisky and its lost a little bit to oaky and what not. Im not some grand whisky master but I will say this I do not agree with what most people say on the net about yamazaki 25. In fact I say open the dam bottle :) and really enjoy yourself its by far my favourity single malt. Its not super complex its a massive hit of very sweet and very very dry sherry if your not into a mouth drying sweet sherry you may not like it but if you are your in for a real treat.

as for the ace of spades I tried it in a bar in Hokkaido last week was searching department stores when I found a bar. The bar only served ichiros malt hanyu and chichibu and some kariuzawa. It was a very nice whisky from memory it was a 12 year old whisky aged first in a hogshead and second in a sherry cask. But and its a big butt for taste value alone and not collection reasons it was just that a nice whisky on taste alone to me it wouldn't be worth a huge price.

About a month ago i got a bottle of glenfarclas 40 which is a fantastic whisky. That being said i found the taste not to be as good as the 30 the nose was fantastic better than the 30 but the taste goes to the 30.
While on a trip to japan a few weeks back i got a bottle of hakushu 25 and a hakushu 12. I also got two bottles of yamazaki 2014 limited edition which was a real fruit and sherry taste great for the price.

Just got a Hibiki 21yrs old in the Mount Fuji bottle.
The bottle is a beauty in its design, seems a shame to open it.

I find it one of the best QPR bourbons out there and it really fits my profile for bourbons. This is bottle 10 for me... :thumbsup:

I just picked up a 10yo Glenmorangie, nothing supper rare or special, but it is a nice way to introduce my friends into the world of Whisky!

I think it is always important to have a gateway Whisky at hand to introduce people. :thumbsup:

Not officially my purchase but it counts.
Talking to my boss last year about what drinks we loved, I mentioned how I loved Johnny Walker Blue and what do I get from him for a Christmas bonus?? You guessed it. It's $255 here in Arkansas. Blew me away. He just retired so no such luck next time.

I've noticed some forums don't have the edit button. Much to my chagrin. This is one of them, so I try to use (Preview) before I hit Submit.

It was removed because of the issue about 5 to 6 years ago when someone went through and started deleting all their posts. It is sad because it was the result of essentially one time issue.

I'd forgotten about that little issue. I guess we've all moved past that, since the Forums seem pretty healthy once more.
Latest purchase? A Canadian Glen Scotia for a buddy in Glasgow.

This thread is a little slower than it used to be, huh?

Just cracked open an old 55.7% Laphroaig Cask Strength. What a find.
