  1. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Really good nose, unfortunately it throws back the thin mouthfeel and the short finish.

      Strong spicy oak flavors - do these come from Mizunara wood? Heath-honey, with sweetness, some blends, some raisins and caramel.
    • Taste

      Clearly restrained in the mouth. Gentle and creamy, grain-like sweetness, light tropical fruit, oak tones in the background.
    • Finish
      76 76
      Quite short and thin, the malt disappears quickly from the mouth. Honey, oak, and gone.

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Caramel mostly on the nose with a little licorice to enhance all this. In the mouth, caramel, creamy, obviously, but I do not perceive the influence of Japanese oak. It remains a blend to 40%, difficult to put the aromas in the spotlight.
    Enthusiasm 2/5

  8. wisekycourse scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    blend with a Japanese wood!
    to look for the difference?
    • Nose
      varied fruits, pronounced spices, caramel!
    • Taste
      the woody (undifferentiated) is present, after, it's a real blend with little negative things, but few singularities, spices, a little sweet smoke, almost liquorice in fact, varied fruits!
    • Finish
      quite short, fades quickly anyway!

    N- Sweet sandal wood with tobacco. Grassy with whiff of unoffensive gun powder and sulphur drift thru, some rum and raisin. Get grassier and leafy at tail. Rounded and creamy with citrus zest. (85/19)

    P- The rather 'damaging' and elementary sugary sweetness that carries on throughout the palate dented the otherwise quite a nice compote of boiled pear, cooked mashed cereals, sweet spices, ginger and subtle sweet oak phenol. (83/18)

    F- Short-medium, smooth with peppery coat, tannic and feeling the wee stickiness from all the evilly "sugar" that comes with it. (84/18)

    Body / Balanced:- (84/18)
