- Takemoto Katsuhiko 【First】: Amber alcohol feeling at first In the morning impression (It is strange to the contrary though mostly it is opposite, but the one after swallowing well understood fragrance and the impression is great) Vanilla feeling Again Muscat or without seed Grapes slightly pineapple plants feeling (like a pine tree) sweet burnt wheat time with time (after swallowing) increased momentum acetic acid [faint] acetic acid [Middle]: body gets excited through the finish vanilla feeling spreading sweetness with transparency wonderful aloe peach 【Finish】: Returning nose escapes with a sense of unity Powerfully sour acidity (grapefruit) Muscat pineapple apples Fruit sense gets vigorous through the nose This is delicious http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=1959
- Color: Gold with a slight greenish hue.
Nose: Fresh, spicy, but not very woody. Fat make-up powder. Vanilla with old paint. Licorice. Hints of a damp cellar. Flowery and you would expect it to be dry in the taste. After a while it develops in the glass. Sweat and dry construction wood or sawdust. If you give it some time and work it a bit, than it can be a very rewarding smell. In a laid back or introvert way. Again vanilla ice cream. Nice balance.
Taste: Wow, full body and spicy, Vanilla with apricot sauce. Nice! Yeah, this is it. Slightly beer like bitterness in the finish and black pepper. Alcoholic cherry bon-bon. Blueberry juice and creamy vanilla. Yes this has it all. When the bottle was opened at the Genietschap Lochside tasting, this was very closed and hard to score, but it has now opened shop. Very good. Like the nose, you have to work it a bit and give it a chance, but when you focus on the details, this is a gem!
