Apparently, I'm not alone in my opinion, because Yamazaki is the number one single malt whisky in Japan and according to Jim Murray's 2015 Whisky Bible edition, Yamazaki's 2013 Sherry Cask is this year's true whiskey winner.

Live in the Los Angeles area? Stop into Sushi Roku for a sip of the Yamazaki 12 year. gave the 2012 Yamazaki Sherry Cask a 91/100 (higher than the 2011) so, perhaps this sherry cask whisky gets even better with age. By the way, what's the deal with all these Murrays and the Suntory brand…?
