    Another stunning dram from Japan. 
    • Nose
      A lovely old nose. The softness of a grain, but the subtlety of an extraordinary cask. Butter tablet melting in a pan with a sprinkling of cinnamon and cocoa. Lovely fruit notes emerge. 
    • Taste
      The tablet theme continues, but the fruit notes flutter through it and make the most exquisite sensations on the palate. 
    • Finish
      Not the longest thing ever, but my mind is well and truly blown.

    Nose:
    Heavy on the Glue, Velpon comes to mind. But also loads of wood. Could be intriguing.

    Body: The Glue continues, and is not what I hoped. It dominates the pallet. A bit of water makes it all unbalanced, so avoid that.

    Finish: More Glue, hints of wood, finally some hints of grain and fruitier things.

    Not recommended. The price of 11.000 yen is quite reasonable for a bottle of this vintage. Too bad it`s not worth it in the taste, for me at least.
