  1. nallacam scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very fine and round malt. One of my favorite Japanese standards. With the prices that are now called, there is no risk of buying.
    Because of the 43% you have a bit of the feeling that he is behind the mountain with the full aroma package.
    He usually has a hard time on tasting evenings because he is usually in one of the first positions and then appears to be weak in the final accounts.

  4. juju cassoulet scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Malty, very round in the mouth where nothing exceeds, in the manner of the Japanese.
    I was expecting better, my memory of 12yo is much better.

  5. Claudio + Cats scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Weak, little taste, hardly any depth. after all, no annoying side taste. A great whiskey for guests who do not understand anything. I will never buy again. Imaginative, no character. There are cheaper, I taste better, for example. the Bunnahabhain XVIII.

  6. Murxus scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Well, somewhat underrated (< 85 pts) and overpriced (>200€) at the same moment.

  9. Butei scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Very nice whisky, but difficult to describe why. I should try another dram I guess

  10. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Nose yellow fruits and flowers. Do not make his age in the mouth. Final astringent and warming. Way.
