  2. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    An excellent representative of the country of the rising sun, typically Japanese, nothing superfluous, and all that is perfectly balanced, cohesive and harmonious, not a masterpiece of course, but the class is felt, a beautiful bourbon frame and a small barrel fit in - a lot of wood, but everything to the place, 3-4 years in all, damn, many and for 20 close to this level can not come up. Well, it was not without a fly-fly - as for all Japanese in recent times - the price tag is off scale, as Serge saw it right - "... our friends seem to get more Scottish than the Scots with their whiskies these days ... ".
    • Nose
      Open, calm, noble wood, lacquer, powerful, deep, drying oil paint, a little eucalyptus, soft conifers, larch, almonds, pickled cucumbers, salty grape leaves, very bourbon.
    • Taste
      Thick, saturated, oak, needles, peppery wave, caramel sweetness, varnish, oily.
    • Finish
      Spicy, bourbon, warming, oak bitterness, varnish.

    Well. See also my comment at the Chibidaru 2010. Blind comparison July 2016 Chibiduru 2009 + 2010 The wood is much more dominant than in the 2010s. It is more intense on the palate, but the 2010er is more balanced. Not too much water.

    in German: That makes only a little wet with water, nothing to bathe the vil. otherwise no booze. Schmekke almost wi tree.

    Pastry: Crème brulée, pear tart. A dessert! For me, it's a whisky who doesn't do his age (±10 years). I really enjoy the nose.
