    The aroma is dense, enveloping, fat: vanilla, cream, linseed oil, a bit of minerality (stones, earth), a hint of smoke, plum compote, ginger, skin. With a drop of water, fruit, vegetable theme and wax. The taste is slightly spicy, sweet: pepper and other spices, licorice, candied fruit, citrus notes, wax, tea, smoke, small bitterness. The aftertaste is long, slightly astringent: tea, fruit, candied fruit, licorice, wax, smoke. In the development of ashes and a hint of tobacco. Conclusion . A perfect example of Japanese craftsmanship. Well-built whisky with a multifaceted aroma, deep taste and a soft long aftertaste. You can experiment with water. It's good without it. Rating: 90 (n23t23f22b22).

    Donders, what a nice whisky! If you still want to purchase it (can still be found) then you pay the main prize for this. There is a real hype surrounding this distillery and Japanese whisky in general. It is a whisky that gets richer and more complex from a few drops of water, but be careful with it! it would be a shame if you would ruin such a unique (and expensive) whisky. Take your time and you will be rewarded with a wealth of exotic and rich aromas

  11. numen scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    purchased sample
    • Nose
      Rather elegant and 'orange,' with a bit of oaky varnish. Surprisingly
      mute here, though elements of sawdust are present. It takes some time,
      but it does open a bit more. Light red sherry notes, soft nuts like
      cashews, and pepper from the wood. (with water) More light tropical
      fruits, though this also becomes a bit more alcoholic. Barely, but
      enough. Honey and a pleasant oily quality - flax seed? Earthy, subtly,
      of drops from a damp forest.
    • Taste
      Very lovely! More in the mouth than on the nose. Tropical and lush
      fruits. Mango, pineapple, and cantaloupe. Very elegant varnish, ash,
      honey, and chili pepper. (with water) Much simpler here. Honey, ash,
      oily, great wood (like a wooden bourbon cask). Simpler, but I may prefer
      it for the ashy quality.
    • Finish
      Pretty much the same thing going on here. It reminded me, with water, a
      bit of a well aged HP, though maybe a bit ashier, a nice little addition
      to the dram.

    Toffee, wood and spice, well integrated, with a long, elegant finish on sandalwood and maple syrup.

  14. magic_slim scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Simply very very good. What a nice and positive surprise !
    • Nose
      A warming, beautiful nose - fresh, exotic fruits and flowers. Tangerines, chinese plum wine and lotus flowers. Small amounts of vanilla, sandalwood and wax.
    • Taste
      Warming, clean and spicy. Chili, cinnamon and exotic wood as well as a little toffee and spirity notes. Some exotic fruityness as well (cape gooseberries and sweet tangerines). A very tasty combination indeed.
    • Finish
      Long with the spicy notes and exotic fruityness lingering on, then becoming more oaky and dry.
