    • Nose
      78 78
      A little weak. A trail of cooked fruits.
    • Taste
      82 82
      More fruits, cherry dominates. Almost like a cherry liqueur. The whiskey for the cherry blossom festival.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium. Impression of the fruits is preserved.

  3. Whisky101 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Nose is very light and no heavy malt at all. It has light fruit, sweets, fruit gums. I would have said this was a liqueur rather than a whiskey.

    Taste remains light and full of fruit and sweetness. You get some new oak through all the fruit but you would struggle to believe it was 40%.

    Don’t add water you will drown this blend.

    The finish is really short and leaves you with a light fruit aftertaste.

    This is not a complex blend at all and I find it really one dimensional. Is this Japanese blend confirming they have little stock and so a very young and light set of whiskies have had the life blended out of them. Too dull for me but glad this was not a very high price. There are so many better blends out there.
