Another missed slam

I forgot one where I made an easy 12 tricks, because it's just crazy to bid slam on this hand. We didn't even reach game, and it needs too many well placed cards to actually make a chance. Here it is:

Dealer:South
Vul:Both
Scoring:imps
AJ4
84
AT2
AJ975
K3
Q72
KJ96
T862
T85
KJ9653
Q74
Q
Q9762
AT
853
K43

The auction was quickly over:
pass - pass - 1NT! - pass
pass - pass

(weak NT)

After a lead, I immediately took A and finessed J. When the K drops under A and Q drops under K, an easy 12 tricks are for the taking...
