    Very soft mouthfeel. A beautiful cutie. Reminds me of caramel cream candies with some baked banana.

  7. MaroFF scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    As for blended whiskey, it is a very interesting proposition to drink sauté. Admittedly, the aroma of the alcohol strikes me slightly, but it does not bother me that much. The taste has a lot of sweets and coffee and nut flavors. The finish is also very pleasant with an intense honey sweetness and a candy finish.
    • Nose
      82 82
      mild alcohol, lots of fruit, green apple, apricot, raisins, a bit of young oak, a small balloon in the background
    • Taste
      83 83
      smooth, creamy, slightly spicy, honey-bitter, yeast dough, vanilla, walnuts and coffee
    • Finish
      83 83
      medium, slightly peppery, again honey, toffee, sugar syrup, a slightly spicy tip, pinching the tongue, with a hint of milk candy.

    • Nose
      Slightly sweet. Some honey. Wax. Sheep footprints in the background. Caramel, not so sweet.
    • Taste
      Bittersweet oak. Honey. Caramel. Bright, dried fruit. Slightly astringent. Wax again. A pinch of spices. White pepper.
    • Finish
      Sweetness. Caramel. A trace of sweet oak. A bit of bitterness. Medium-long finish. There was some smoke in the finish with the second sip.

  10. Saftkenner scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Recommended if you can get up to 45 €. On the palate, I am particularly impressed by its powerful and even slightly oily appearance.
    • Nose
      81 81
      At first unpleasantly pungent alcohol. Otherwise also quite strong in the aroma.
      Ripe cherries, mint, oak, raspberries, vanilla, a little caramel, sea salt, glue.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Amazingly powerful for the low drinking strength. Also slightly oily and amazingly balanced.
      Spicy oak, rum pot with pickled cherries and plums, freshly ground vanilla pod, caramel, chocolate cake.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium-long finish. Vanilla, with oak spice and dark chocolate.

    Really good nose, unfortunately it throws back the thin mouthfeel and the short finish.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Strong spicy oak flavors - do these come from Mizunara wood? Heath-honey, with sweetness, some blends, some raisins and caramel.
    • Taste
      78 78
      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.

  20. wisekyofcourse 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!

  21. Andytka3 scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    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)

    Definitely a step up from Chives 12.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Sharp note, given that it's only 40%. Need to let it sit awhile before you can access the nose profile. Sweetness on the nose, and typical Chivas.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Good palate and doesn't need water, fresh fruit, sweet but not too thick.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long aftertaste and keep going.

  23. 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

    Really a horny nose, which would raise the whiskey to the 90 points. But then? Unfortunately there is nothing more in the taste. A pity. Clear a blend and he is also incredibly soft. But the nose just has to get around. One should not have thinned down so softly.
    • Nose
      Immediately, a fruity sweetness is spreading. Go in the direction of mango, melon, apple. Reminds me somehow of these sour apple rings of Trolli, just not so artificial. Add vanilla. And I also have a slightly musty smell, which I put on the barrel. But it is not bad at all and goes well with the barrel. In any case, a great nose, which is varied and, depending on the intensity of the smell, also emphasizes other nuances. Finally, marshmallow notes come up.
    • Taste
      Very mild. Do I even have that in my mouth? But almost no aroma on the tongue. Some honey and a bit of melon and mango. Very light and the vanilla. But that's it.
    • Finish
      Short. Here, too, only the honey and a little spice remains. A little apple and vanilla.

    Taste is both Nose and Departure behind, certainly not worth 75-80 €, rather 35-40 €, then he would be a nice alternative to the normal Chivas.
    • Nose
      Very nice nose, slightly flat with the natural, but coconut, actually this typical Japanese oak, caramel, a lot of honey, vanilla, apple, some mango, also a bit maritime
    • Taste
      In the mouth, unfortunately a bit verwässerd acting, as mentioned my Vorschreiber. I definitely have salt, caramel, young spicy oak, some herbal honey, vanilla, malt / cereal, much more unfortunately not. Here comes the Japanese much less out as I think
    • Finish
      Coconut again, young oak and here comes the maritime with some apricot out, medium long

  29. maltaholic scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    supposedly a special edition for Japan. Very nice smell. The barrel smells fantastic. Tastes good too. I almost believe that it is verduennt because it is so easy. But the wood taste is great. Fruity, woody, very nice.
