    Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky Tasted with Tante Anne. Her notes appear in quotes. TASTING NOTES: Bubble gum, dry sherry, and a zip of orange zest. Solo [Norwegian soft drink - ed.]. Evaporated milk, sweet caramel chews. "Smells Japanese. Like old wooden Japanese homes" (She has spent a lot of time in Japan). Minty sherry oak and plastic bags. Walnuts, raspberry seeds, delicious bittersweet notes like slices of Gala apples. Very dry finish with some pine and a cocoa smokiness. SUMMARY: Nose opened up with time and patience and made varied impressions. Water dulled the impact on the palate but helped discriminate between flavours. A very impressive package in a very impressive package. And another rich but affordable Japanese whisky. There is something Aberlour and Teaninich about it. Tried it as a MIZUWARI [Lots of water and ice - ed.] and it was gentle, but with a surprisingly complex array of flavours from brioche to cherries to chocolatey smoke.
