    A restrained bourbon-lite grain which could masquerade as a malt whisky until you taste it
    • Nose
      80 80
      Nose: varnish, glue, coal dust. Maybe a tiny little clove oil and grape flowers. Unchanged with water
    • Taste

      Palate: Dilute coffee bitters, bourbon, vanilla. With water some additional almond marzipan.
    • Finish

      Finish: some bitter chocolate powder, lime rinds, a little salt.

    ¥3400+ / 700ml

    Appearance: Pale, straw golden.

    Nose: Grass, herbs, apple, light oak, cereals. Touch of honey.

    Palate: Fresh herbal, green apples, some vanilla and caramel, pepper, oak. Grain spirit heat.

    Finish: Woody, grainy, peppery, simple and grain spirit sharp.

    With Water: Nose becomes more herbal. Flavor definitely better, more malt, more grain and fruit and less heat. Better with a bit of water. Oaky though.

    Overall: Very mediocre and not really worth half the price. Forget about this one. This is just crap. Way overpriced hype.

    • Taste
      Fruit; light fruit; Lychee; some oak, slightly bitter touch; peppery sharpness
    • Finish
      spicy oak, delicate bitter nuances; light fruit compote;

    The first sip of this bottle of whisky just opened made me wonder if I had bought a fake, spicy and pungent smell. But when I was curious and added a few drops of water! Like magic, layers slowly begin to emerge. So please give this whiskey a little patience, please add ice and wait a few minutes, I believe you will not give him such a low score.

    This was probably bottled in 2018 or 2019.
    The front label shows 46% and on the backlabel 46.5%
    Similar bottles had the 46% on the front covered with a sticker so I presume 46.5% is the right abv.
