  1. drkrylov scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Great whisky making.
    • Nose
      Quite shy at first, but the odd sherry note mingles with typically Japanese resin and mushroom. Traces of damp Autumn leaves. Savoury rather than sweet.
    • Taste
      Exquisite! without water it's a heady mix of soft toffee and sharp and challenging chile spice. With water there are some softer mintier and lime sherbet notes. The spices fight back late on.
    • Finish
      Warm, soft, rich and toffeed, with some spice to keep it in shape.

    Elaborated with grain and malt from Miyagikyo and malt from Yoichi distillery.
    Matured in first fill bourbon casks.
