      Fresh and fruity start with lots of grains or even toasted bread. Big nose and not very subtle.
    • Taste

      Sweet citrus fruit with powdered Sugar. Candy and chemical fruit like turkish delight. Also again the grainy part with baguette and other whitebread.

  3. kanpai79 scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    You never know, what you get, open an older White Oak SC bottling. Recent ones become better and better, older are very different in quality. This one -imo- isn’t that bad, at least it is cask strength. It’s young and rough, not WOW but also not WTF...so yeah, okay one, nothing special and nothing for Japanse-beginners. Tried it in Limburg 2018 and had a couple of worse drams there.

    • Taste
      The beginning is still ok with halfway fresh sherry fruit, then explode all the fireworks remnants that can be found worldwide after New Year's Eve in the mouth, rotten eggs like I've never had before, in between a touch of honey and caramel, but otherwise disgusting with At any moment, only the alcohol is well integrated for> 61%, you have to say: 'D
