Color
Mahogany
Nose

Volle Dattelbombe in der Nase, alles urtypische von dunkelstem Sherry, von Hakushu nichts mehr übrig natürlich, Rosinen, Espresso, Kakaopulver, schwarz angebranntes Toastbrot, Pflaumenmuß, Schwarzkirsche, Pralinen, Johannisbeere, Lakritz, dunkles, altes Leder, erdiges, schwarze Walnüsse und all das zusammen eine Ewigkeit in einer hölzernen Bowle irgendwo in Japan vergraben

Taste

Johannisbeeren zerstampft, uralten Erdbeeren dazugegeben, Pflaumenmuß, Pilze, Creme de Cassis, Lakritz, Datteln natürlich wieder, die dezent verbrannte Note der Nase ist hier auch wieder mit verbrannter Creme Brulee, Schwarzkirschen, Süßholz, schwarze Walnuss, all das dabei direkt von der ersten Sekunde so austrocknend und kräftig bei "nur" 48%, dass die Zunge sich zusammenzieht, sehr astringierend, aber dadurch auch spannender

Finish

Ingwer, trockene zerstampfte Walnuss, Beerenmuß weiterhin mit den Kernen, bitter-süß, langanhaltend natürlich, Schwarzkirsche, feuchte Eiche, etwas Tabakblätter trocken dabei, Walderde und die Pilze

Comments

Für mehr Punkte war es mir deutlich zu überladen, bitter und nichts mehr übrig von einer Distille, japanesewhiskyreview schrieb was von in der Nase typisch Hakushu und frisch???? Anscheinend anderen Whisky gehabt als ich und jeder andere hier. :')

This was only available for a few weeks in Japan during early 2012 before it sold out. The nose is warm and inviting with notes of ginger roott. honey, dried fruits and plums, and a very unusual combination: grilled salmon and roast beef au jus. The taste is fruity and thick with a nice acidic tartness, hints of lemons, black cherries, brown sugar, plums, and cooked berries. The finish is long, dry, and slightly tart with roasted almonds and a hint of ginger root.

Tasting Notes (by Dramtastic):

Nose: Top note is classic Hakushu, fresh and clean, a walk through the forest of the Japanese Alps; dry sherry, Valencia oranges, new leather seats, fresh mint, sweet tobacco, well-steeped tea, stewed prunes and a little vanilla.
Palate: Leads with a big combo of hot and sweet spices. Peanut brittle, dry sherry, strawberry, cloves, earth, chocolate, fig jam, mushrooms. Water brings out toffee, nougat, cherry and enhances the strawberry.
Finish: Medium on forest earthyness, mushrooms, dry sherry, strawberries, toffee, fig jam, peanut butter, fresh lawn clippings, tobacco leaf, drying.
Rating: 89/100.
