  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Confused stuff. Somehow reminiscent of whiskey, but rather a Grain-Bourbon-Malt-Frankenstein, medium scratchy-bitter-sharp, undefined spiciness, with a lot of imagination I find a touch of caramel at the bottom. Category 7 € supermarket.

    • Nose
      Ethanol, barley sugar, lemon and honey, very sweet, cornflakes
    • Taste
      Herbal, lemon candy, oranges, a bit grassy, no big complexity
    • Finish
      rather short and surprizingly watery for 50%, honey, bitter herbs, vanilla with a shot austere black tea

    Hmm, the nose is not wrong, the rest is somehow too inharmonious. You can not drink, you can not.
    • Nose
      Sweet, bourbon or grainy, slightly wet cardboard, fruit, vanilla, very sweet. A touch of nutmeg that makes it even more bourbon-like.
    • Taste
      Quite spicy, spicy, sweet, vanilla, wood, quite a bit alcoholic
    • Finish
      Short and spicy. Sweet and a touch of liquorice and spices.

    Nose very sweet almost intrusivly sugary. After the first whiff there is oak and lots of it. Some hint of leather probably? Not quite sure it´s a bit confusing. Yeah somehow reminds me of cheap bourbon.

    Taste: not very balanced at all. There´s alcohol and oak and .... ?!sugar?! Somehow it´s also a bit sour. I think they thought of themselves as crazy scientists mixing something together to get gold. Well they didn´t and sold the result as blended Whisky...

    Finish: Unfortunately very long and lasting. Alcohol, oak, damp wood, something foul.

    Phew gonna keep away from that one just to be safe.

    Delicious and similar to a bourbon. Is for the issue price in the home country in really cool PLV Monster. Is in Japan in most supermarkets for the equivalent of about 12 EUR to get. For the almost 50 that he costs with us but you get far better.

    Another major whisky brand not very well known outside of Japan, Kirin Gotemba, is also dropping its Fujisanroku Tarujuku 50? whisky

    Remember that it was sold when it came out for a decade. in Japan !
    Here, always for a 50ne!
    And always very spicy, too alcoholic, very spicy! IMHO! But after a third of "party", or I get used or I find it in a good average for a blend! 81 !!
