Nose

A forest in autumn, near the ground - not rotten at all but warm and ripe berries with a hint of moss. A little honey and old wood.

Taste

Dark chocolate, some vanilla, a little nut, dries plums and coffee, some pepper. 

Finish

Quite long, warm pepper and coffee lingering like welcome memories. 

Comments

Nothing better in that price-range - but don't tell anyone.

Elaborated with grain and malt from Miyagikyo and malt from Yoichi distillery.


Matured in first fill bourbon casks.

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.

Comments

Great whisky making.
