  1. sealgair scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Initially hardly noticed in the USA, it was exported to Japan. Highly valued there as a premium bourbon, it is now being re-exported from Japan all over the world for expensive money - mine is a bottling of the Kirin company from Japan.

      Toffee, butterscotch, orange zest, banana, vanilla, coconut, caramel and dark berries.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Despite the comparatively low alcohol content, it is heavy and lush on the tongue. Spices, tobacco and some chocolate are now added to the aromas from the nose.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The aftertaste is not too long, but a taste of young, fresh corn sticks well

  2. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    1990s bottle. 35ml for ¥500 at Sake Museum.

    Appearance: Orange-amber. Not as dark as expected.

    Nose: Big cherry, cinnamon, light apple.

    Palate:
    Cherry, oak, cinnamon, vanilla. Smooth.

    Finish: Cherry and cinnamon. Soft and mellow. Old bottle effect seems there too.

    With Water: Nice drink on the rocks.

    Overall: Quite lovely and very smooth. Sweet, woody, and delicious. The wood is quite elegant and not too tannic or bitter. Steal at this price.
