Red fruits. Watered down red table wine.
Some exotic wood, probably a large tree that's been choped down, but also some smaller bushes and shrubberies still in the ground with new sprung leaves.
Very gentle, so little wrong that it feels engineered, "Made in Japan" probably mean that it is. However that perfectionism is exactly what makes it lack that enthusiastic spark.
Same with the taste, it doesn't make me enthusiastic.
Very drinkable, nothing wrong and that's what's wrong.
Some would say "smooth", I call it slick. It slips down without very much to grasp on to, although it got a noticable level of all spice.
Sweet, caramel, maybe a nut or two.
Very simple short finish on caramel notes, although some spicy warmth lingers for a little bit longer.
