Nose : fine, complex. Floral (lilac), fruity (apricot). Notes of spices (clove) and leather.
Palate : powerful, firm. Spicy (pepper). Woody (oak). Evolves on ripe fruits (peach), caramelized apple and flowers (honeysuckle). Final : moderately long. Marine notes. Ripe fruit (plum, peach) on a background of woody-vanilla notes.
Comment : intense and balanced, a blend for a malt enthusiast who wants to discover the world of Japanese whisky at a price more than interesting.
