  4. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    15ml/¥950@Isetan.

    Appearance: Lovely deep amber.

    Nose: Spices, oak, vanilla, light smoke, honey, raisins, sherry, light chocolate.

    Palate: More camp fire smoke, oak, chocolate, some nuts, vanilla, caramel.

    Finish: Spicy oak, vanilla, quite long.

    With Water: Not necessary but some stone fruits seem to come out, with sweeter vanilla as well.

    Overall: Smooth, deep, and lovely, nice influence from sherry and bourbon casks. Lightly peated. For me, this was a better drinker than the Yamazaki 18, and also clearly better than the Glenlivet 18 and Glenfiddich 18 that I had following. It also costs 4x-8x as much as they do.
