5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.57 points

  1. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Appearance: Pale amber color.

    Nose: Malty, fruity, and very unique. Tropical fruit, with notes of coconut and pineapple, ginger snaps, toffee, vanilla, rich cookies. Crazy nose. Seems more similar to an Irish pot still whisky.

    Palate: Sweet and fruity flavor, soft, spicy, and malty. Dried fruits, again Irish-like, but not exactly.

    Finish: Sweet and spicy, hides alcohol well.

    With Water: Becomes sweeter and milder but not recommended generally.

    Overall: Very unique and delicious. I wish I had bought many when this was ¥3000 a bottle, as opposed to ¥1500 for something like half a shot. Way overpriced at Cordon Noir.

    Very exceptional with great coffee. Delicious and harmonious.
    • Nose
      Immediately on the nose, milk coffee and creamy, sweet vanilla. In addition, clear amaretto and citrus notes that become stronger over time. Some wood in the background. Very extraordinary, but very harmonious.
    • Taste
      Very strong and powerful start, sweet vanilla cream, nuts, mandarins and nice oak spice.
    • Finish
      Nutty and vanilla, tart coffee notes. The amaretto is back, with a bit bitter pear skin.
