Color
Burnished
Nose

Sweet oak and vanilla, rich, intensive, also fruity like citrus fruits, tropical fruits, passion fruits, ripe bananas, pineapples

Taste

Very oily, liquorice, mellow and thick, nice fruity notes with rich vanilla and oak aromas, nice sweetness, after a while also some nutty and cinnamon notes come up

Finish

Long and smooth, still having some citrusy and vanilla

Comments

A great whisky indeed - it's just a bit too sweet and smooth for my taste - thus is probably not my favorite but still great

If this bottle came in at 46%, I'd give a few more points ...

  • N: Soft-rich fruits (blood orange, frangipane-cherry, marmalade, orange blossom, wild strawberries, raspberry leaf tea wrapped in plasticine, fusty peppery dunnage, yes! Like a genie of the lamp, i seem to get exactly whatever I ask for.
  • T: Woody-fruity-sugary with thick-deep bitter putty - the oak has a bite, soft yes but a bite nevertheless.
  • F: Not a long finish.
  • C: Another case of the 1,2 & 3’s - nose>palate>finish.

Scores B[-] points overall [nose A,..]

Gegorene Früchte, matschige Erdbeere, Bratapfel, Honig, Birne und Vanille, sehr aromatisch wie man es von Japanern und Hibiki insbesondere gewohnt ist, man könnte ihm ewig Zeit lassen

Taste

Alle Früchte von oben wieder, Apfel, Birne, saure Beeren, elegantes Zedern- und Süßholz, Ingwer, Muskat, Zimt, Trockenfrüchte, sehr vollmundig für die %, wow!

Finish

Lang, Ingwer, Apfelschale, Trockenfrüchte

Comments

Bisher vllt. einer der 1-3 besten Japaner die ich je hatte, wow!

Gouté en fin de session, trop dense que pour être apprécié pleinement avec des papilles bien fatiguées... ça donne envie d'y revenir. Monstrueusement précis, floral et over fruité !

Extrêmement fondu, bubble gum, boisé, menthe : captivant. En bouche, très crémeux et souple en plus d'être raccord avec le nez. Super classe. Finale de velours !

Enthousiasme 5/5

Andytka3 gave this whisky 85 points

N- Sticky honey with floral and vanilla custard. Ultra pleasant and soothing, but lack of identity, a dram everyone would enjoy, but not remembering it the day after.

P- Instant tips of sweet on a seasonal wood, tabacco, dry with alluring pear drops. Some mints.

F- Medium-long, broad with finesse and not aggressive, balance with peppery emerge. Nice blend but austere. Would be excellent at her actual value, which is 4 times lesser than what she worth now.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Floral, vernis, cire et dissolvent? Un peu de compote de fruits, clémentines confites et malt. Très élégant.

Taste

Plus sèche et un peu fumée. On retrouve les fruits compotés et quelques agrumes également. Miel et cire aussi.

Finish

Longue, légèrement fumée et assez boisée/épicée.

Comments

Bien fait. C’est classe et élégant mais j’en attendais tout de même un peu plus
