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.
