  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Of the 3027 bottles, only 996 were released to the European market, so it is hard to find (and expensive). If I mix Bernheim Original (I am aware that this is not a Bourbon) and Greenore, I get the same thing. It is hard to believe Jim Murray awarded this 97 points in his 2009 bible and labeled it Japanese Whisky of the Year, but there you go. Overrated.
    • Nose
      The nose reminds me of Bourbon, mixed with grain whisky. A lot of vanilla, toasted bread, white chocolate and Kenzo perfume my daughter fancies when going out. After several moments, I get honey, expresso and nuts. This is malt whisky?
    • Taste
      The attack is razor sharp, very sweet and spirity (read: a lot of alcohol). Reminds me of Eristoff. And Bourbon again, with vanilla, banana, Batida de Coco and nutmeg. That is three drinks on one palate, but no single malt.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and spicy.
