Whisky Reviews for Shinshu 28-year-old

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.04 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Tasted this again tonight and it's still a 90 point whisky. The nose is a bit closed... had this slight spicy, alcoholic sting to it, with some citrus and oak. I usually associate Japanese whisky with having a good nose, so this was a bit of a letdown. On the palate, there is sweet plums, a bit of incense (a very Japanese quality that you find in Hanyu), less concentrated smooth pu'er tea, but for the most part, it's just pretty benign. Not that it's not good, but I expected more for a whisky that won some award some years ago (I forgot what). Finish is average. I'll chug this for sure, if I was fabulously wealthy, and it's very good, but this is definitely NOT a great whisky. 

  2. tomy63 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    whiskey consisting of a malt of at least 3 years from the distillery of Kagoshima then aged 25 years in Shinshu. Gold color, nose on apricot, citrus, lemon, seems a little tart, wax, honey. Mouth sweet, honeyed, vanilla, greedy, beautiful thick texture, citrus, we find the acidulous side, coffee and caramel in the background, spices on the finish. Finale of medium length, a little more spicy. A whiskey especially pleasant in the mouth by its sweet honey.

  3. tuntime scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    A "pure malt" containing whisky produced at Yamanashi (1960-1969) and Kagoshima (1978-1984) distilleries.

  4. addyhd scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Winner of WWA

  5. Willie JJ scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    I was really getting into this one. It would be great to have a bottle.
    • Nose
      A really beautiful old oak nose with no bitterness or mustiness. Prune juice caramelised sugar and dried tobacco leaf.
    • Taste
      A light armagnac start that fades, but remains a theme. The tobacco and sugar light up your palate along with tiny flashes of liquid liquorice.
    • Finish
      Not powerful, but lovely little malty sugary flashes with the recurring armagnac giving it charm.
