Yamazaki 25 wins yet the link attached to the 25YO takes you to 2 old reviews on this site that after reading you would not want to touch that whisky with a barge pole let alone pay the 500 odd pound asking price.
Maybe time for a couple of new reviews that reflect why this whisky won.

How can Black Bull 40 win "worlds best new release" ?

BB40 batch 1 (the one linked) was released quite a few years ago and even batch 2 is at least a couple of years back ?
