    Kuririn Rating: ★ 9/10 Aroma: A fragrance with a foamy feeling, an elegant and glossy sweetness that volatilizes like a micro carbonic acid, and alcohol. Strawberries, berries, raisins, just handmade strawberry jam. I feel a fragrance like a toast a bit, a scent like a Japanese sweet white syrup. In the back there is dark fruit with a massive sense like a prune like a prune, comes out before time with time. I feel slightly woody, sour taste. Shelly incense wrapped in a rich but very well-balanced, distinctive flavor feels like being something completely heterogeneous from sherry barrel aging at other distillery. If it says it is sensual, a word of wonderful anyway. Taste: Sweet and sour tasteful flavor spreads at once. Full body, weighty but not persistent taste, there is felt feeling felt in scent. First of all, if there is wine of sweetness with sweetness of sweetness like champagne and foamed wine. With the spread of flavor, I feel a stimulus like a tender carbonate on my tongue. Successful ripened strawberries and seedless grapes, raisins, blueberry tea, berry chocolate · · · tannin are moderate degrees, and sweetness, sourness, astringent and aged for nearly 40 years are unbelievably balanced. The nose omission firmly passes through the berry sense and elegant sweetness of the Japanese confectionery system. Bitteriness derived from tannins accumulates in the lingering finish. Slightly woody sweetness Stubborn strawberry jam, chocolate, roasted coffee acidity, accumulation lasts for as long as you drink. Summary: From the stage of pouring, the presence of overwhelming fragrance, sweet and elegant fragrance fills the room. Personally, it is one of the sherry barrel maturation completion system. There is a similar flavor in the 18th year of Clear Danpie of the special grade period, but because of the cask strength, the balance is dependent on taste. Both are very nice bottles. Also, if you drink carefully, it is interesting that Sherry seems to have a similar tendency in the 12 years of Green Danpie, which is not dominant. Whether this miraculous Sherry feel comes from, barrels or alcoholic beverages, as far as the official of the past is seen it can be said to be alcoholic, but at the same 72, 71 there are also bottles which this flavor has not appeared in barrels, and sake Should I look at the combination of quality and barrels ... Anyway, as a drinker I want to drink while I can drink, a very nice bottle. Sherry malt having sensual and glossy sweetness, fruity feeling can hardly be found except for part of Dronac 1971, 1972 vintage. Personally it is also one of the malts that I want to drink before I die. http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=19949
