I agree with you, the 12 year old Yamazaki is an interesting whiskey, even if it doesn't blow the doors off. There are many more multi-dimensional whiskies out there, but again, for the price, it's a decent enough whiskey. Save your money and don't buy the 18 year old though, I found it too "hot" and would take the 12 year old over the 18 all day long.
