Plum Liqueur

This White Oak, without age statement, from the Eigashima or White Oak distillery in Japan, is a blend, not a single malt. White Oak is only active for two months per year, so their output is very limited. This blend, in bottles of 50cl, are available for around 30 EUR. It has matured some 5 to 6 years.

The nose is light and very accessible. Reminds a of plum liqueur. Some krieks as well. And hay in the background. Fairly simply, but pleasant.

The texture is light, honeysweet on plums and blood oranges with a lot of sugars, a nice peppery spiciness and a hint of smoke. This is becoming interesting.

The finish, however, is rather light and very short.

This is a pleasant enough Japanese blend, but nothing more. Thanks for the sample, Thierry.

N- Boiled berries and floral upfront. Gentle and soft for a young blend. Vanilla and raw cereal, dusting powder. Light sourness and musky notes underlay.

T- Quite full, cooked porridge and oat meal. Restrained fruity sweetness. Frizzy with a layer of chili spiciness.

F- Medium length. Touch of spirity at the back and natural fresh wood bitterness building up at the back of palate. Mild in general.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Nez de grain avec un peu de solvant. La bouche est beaucoup moins agréable, grossière sur le bois et l’alcool. Finale alcooleuse. Très moyen.

Ce Blend n`est pas au point, au même prix qu`un nikka front the barrel le choix est vite fait .


Mais le temps et l`expérience changeront ses quelques défauts.

Un blend japonais sans grande envergure, nez léger et peu aromatique, bouche savonneuse, finale courte et relativement désagréable. Très cher (près de 30 euros pour 500 ml) pour une qualité faible, à éviter.

Nose

Jam sponge cake, golden syrup and a suggestion of something metallic. Very nice.

Taste

Mmm, really like biting into that moist sponge cake and having it melt in your mouth. There's a new woodiness about it too. Slightly resiny with the faintest bitterness.

Finish

Lots of white pepper now with little washes of sweetness.

Comments

A very pleasant and easy to drink blend.

It's better to have drunk it all than never to have drunk at all.
