  1. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Appearance: Medium to deep amber-orange, leggy.

    Nose: Raisins / sherry, vanilla, caramel, malt cookies, ginger, cinnamon,

    Palate: Lovely sherry, raisins, vanilla, oak, caramel, malt sugar, ginger, touch of apple, honey. Sweet but of course a bit hot, but the body is much nicer than in their lower abv expressions. Lovely maltiness.

    Finish: Prickly, peppery, cinnamon and cardamum, malt sugar, raisins.

    With Water: Needs a good addition. Becomes less fiery, milder, sweeter, more vanilla and spice.

    Overall: Much fuller bodied than other expressions. This one is my favorite so far. Rich, lovely maltiness and sherry character. Also, stunning value for ¥5200.

  2. Archer scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nice nutty and sherryy nose and tongue. With 46% he has the right drinking strength, water should never be added, that makes him thin.

    A great classic in whisky aged in sherry casks.
    One of the best value for money.

      At the beginning of the apple, then the grapes and finally the red fruits.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very sweet and very fruity still on the red fruits. We feel the influence of sherry casks and wines. A little chocolate. Alcohol is really well integrated.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Longer and more intense than the youngest and even the 18 years old. I just love it.

  5. detachedblue scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Still one of the best affordable whiskies.
    • Nose
      Ripe apple, raisins, aromatic, chocolate cookies, pineapple juice, fresh sherry, just so good.
    • Taste
      Smooth and oily, salted caramel, rich and a little tannin, sweet toffee, melted chocolates.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, sherry, winey, wood spices, slightly bitter, characteristic walnut liqueur.
