  1. JimHennaert scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Very impressive Japanese Whisky. And that for only being 4 years old.
    It is a heavy hitter for sure, but perfectly balanced.
    This in combination with it's youthfull age is why i rate it this high.
    Perfect dram for ending a night of fine dining with family or friends.
    I need to get more because this bottle will be finished in no time. If i can only find it for a good price.

      Very nice nose, Sweet and balanced!
      Pear, honey and fresh grapes. You can smell this whisky has aged on an ex-wine cask in my opinion.
    • Taste
      91 91
      This whisky kicks in, but in a good way, intense and very sweet: honey, creamy vanilla, sweet raisins, red wine and orange marmelade.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long, smooth and with a tickle of orange and tannine bitterness at the very end.
