    Colour: Gold.
    Nose: Very smooth, oaky, young, on vanilla, with some grass and
    Taste: Light, grassy, juicy, oaky, spicy, creamy, on vanilla and
    some smoke. The finish is medium, slightly bitter, smooth and oaky.
    Impression: Still young, but very smooth. A very promising whisky from the young
    Japanese distillery of White Oak

    You can taste it, young whisky.. 5yo and 45%, not a good idea in this case.
    • Nose
      Neat: Nose tingling feeling. Malty and a hint of sweet peach.

      Water: Now its just malty and earthy aromas left..
    • Taste
      Neat: Weak flavors. Grass, malt and oak.

      Water: Much better now, more peppery flavors.
    • Finish
      Neat: Short finish, and a bad taste of alkohol.

      Water: Still short, but the bad taste is gone, but all the flavors too.

      A warming finish with a slight peat flavor that lasts
