  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    In the mouth I feel the Yama delicious but more to drink away .. at the right tasting he shows weaknesses as if old superimposed whisky was in there and a slight alcohol note
    mmh, I like them indeed
    • Nose
      ripe dark sherry
      damp wood
      soaked raisins
      Cloves, cinnamon,
      it mixes in the smell old and new
      Vanilla and glue
      with slightly mellow to old wooden barrel
    • Taste
      cool, plumy start,
      Glow on the tongue then almost smoky in the throat
      Bitterness, Wood,
      then sweetness like a fino sherry slight alcohol note !!

    • Finish
      Finish medium
      dry chocolate
      Wood bitter
      in the background raisins in sherry
      after he is gone He comes once again with some wet sweetness

    Very enjoyable sherry bomb, the best whisky in the world, not too sure about that, reminiscent of 60s macallans even less, but at a more reasonable price point I wouldnt mind a bottle, as the owner of a famous bar in Tokyo once told me, it is great as a party drink.

    What a joke! It was sold at 130th ...
    It is Attali's famous "one-legged pants".

  7. detachedblue scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Not bad at all, just don't understand the hype, as always.
    • Nose
      Very rich and jammy, a lot of blackcurrants, fresh grapes, a bit new oak and paint, black chocolates, very salty.
    • Taste
      Very sweet, a lot of pepper, rich and some new oak.
    • Finish
      Long, coffee beans, hot chocolates, and dates.

  9. ctu scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Massive woody japanese sherry bomb. Overpriced. It's grotesque, but good.
    • Nose
      Big sherry, prune, forest fruits, caramel, vanilla, banana, antique leather and spicy oak.
    • Taste
      Bittersweet. Big sherry and oak. Citruses, candied orange peel, fruit liqueurs and acidic red wines.
    • Finish
      Long, bittersweet.

  10. Kumachan scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    At 150 - 180 € a big yes. Otherwise .... no. If it had to be assigned a grade: Subjectively a 90
    • Nose
      The dress is beautiful, we will lose in the face of a light. .. beautiful brown eyes. Splendid, the bouquet is infinite, it's a moment an aged red wine with notes of cedar, jammy blackcurrant, a banyuls, with walnuts, grilled, bitter cocoa, dried pruno, raisin to the brandy, cherry. The evolution over 30 minutes amplifies, towards notes of earth, candied orange, dry apricot. A rare moment!
    • Taste
      The violin is tuned and in the mouth a beautiful concert! Roasted and toasted notes, dried fruit, fig, black cherries, nuts. Fat and the material present. A light chilli.
    • Finish
      It is perfectly balanced, the finish is long on saline notes, reglissé almost iodized.
