  1. Falnor scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    To score this one is a mixed bag. The soapy side is a little too much, but still a very interesting whisky with lots to discover. Therefore 78 ánd 86.
    • Nose
      This has got a lot of perfume in it. A flowery scent, but not very fresh. After that more commonly sherry notes like chocolate. It got different herbs like eucalyptus.
    • Taste
      Also on the taste dried flowers, in fact that potpourri feeling. Bonbons with fruity flavours. The perfume gets more soapy. It's now more towards fabric softener. Also a big sweet cottoncandy. Herbs like anise and menthol makes this rather complex.
    • Finish
      Still lots of herbs. Rosemary combined with raspberry and chocolate. Nettle tea.

  2. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    1990s bottle. ¥500 for 35 ml @ Sake Museum.

    Appearance: Deep amber. Darker than Royal 12.

    Nose: Ginger bread, estery, wine / raisin, sherry, caramel, plum, fig, light oxidation.

    Palate: Sweet sherry / wine, raisin, cinnamon. Rather light, with a subtle burn.

    Finish: Sweet finish, cinnamon cherry, pepper, wine.

    With Water: Becomes a bit duller, more caramel and vanilla.

    Overall: Very easy drinking. Simple but quite tasty and definitely worth a try at his price, but I won’t be bidding on any bottles soon.

  5. lincolnimp scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Thick, sweet (at first) and syrupy but then a bitter off notes emerges that spoils the party.
    Caramel, toffee, peppery spice, a few fruit gum notes then a load of stem ginger and the bitterness goes away.
    Nothing wrong with it just a little bland and one dimeasional.
