  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Sexy Session 1 (iv): The last of the anime girl for this session. Hopefully this will turn out better than the last, being a sherry again.

    So thanks again, Samantha!

      Hmmm, first impression is beautiful. Candied apple over syrup and cornflakes as toppings. Sweetness is not too extreme but has a sense of acidity possibly onions, ginger or even pomegranate. Orange is very heavy towards the back of the nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Honey, pear, ginger, green grapes, sage and basil. Some might be turned off by the extreme perfume like scents but I am honestly enjoying this, its very floral.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Sweet and medium in length, spicy and continues to be zesty towards the very end. A tad bit of medicinal like hints to the final.

      Firstly ginger, then the mixture of flower, ginger, honey, fruit like pear is quite balance but still young
