mikespike gave this whisky 80 points

Sorry guys, the 10cl sample that I got and tasted did not reveal a great whisky. A bit dry, a bit metallic, not the kindest cask influence of bourbon/oak or sherry. I just can't detect the greatness, 80P for me. More for you, lovers of Japanese whisky..

Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

Très chaleureux, bois vernis, c'est très épicé, des notes de fumée pas de la tourbe c'est animal, cuire, fruits cuit, beaucoup de sucre (caramel, vanille).

Taste

Sèche, sucré / salé, sur les épices, le bois, le sherry, l'orange, du chocolat noir, aussi de la tourbe cette fois. Les fruits sont cachés par tout ce profil animal. 

Finish

Très longue, fumée, fruitée (enfin). Top!

Comments

Ce whisky est très complexe et très bien réalisé. Rien à voire avec les embouteillages OB 12 et 15 ans.

It starts with strong fruity sherry, dryness, fruity sweetness and after a few seconds spices come into play with white pepper, chili, white grapefruit sourness, dryness, herbs, burned cherry, vanilla, honey and sweet cream.

Finish

Very long, fruity, sweet, dry, chocolate, intensive filled with pepper, citrus and herbs.
