  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Very good. Very sherry. A priori all the sherry aromas come from Kawasaki because the hanyu is a hogshead. We are on a mix Hanyu 1991 and Kawasaki 1982.
    • Nose
      The first nose is scary but 1h after we finally talk. Well air it. Quite beefy in alcohol but it's pretty well integrated. Nose a little vinous. Rancio. Cognac. Cherry, raisin. Toffee. Precious wood. Sandalwood. Very slight smoke. Complex. The wood takes more and more space. Like the toffee.
    • Taste
      In the mouth we have lots of spices. Cannelle.Poivre. Bays. Precious wood. The red fruits stand out. Blueberry.
    • Finish
      The finale is back on cherry and other red fruits. Wood. It's long and hot. Yum

    Tried at Mash Tun in Tokyo. The Hanyu character is very strong with this one but the Kawasaki grain adds some sweetness. As per Suzuki-san, the mix of this blend is the following:

    Hanyu 1991 (~70%)

    Kawasaki 1982 (~30%)

  5. Werry scored this whisky 94 points Expert Junior

    Very nice and complex, 1991 Hanyu and 1982 Kawasaki.

    Only available by the glass at The Mash Tun in Tokyo. And with abv of 60% it has more depth and power then the as well amazing ichiro field ballet what is also very difficult to find or drink.
