Robinzon25 gave this whisky 84 points
Color
Burnished
Nose

Аромат: Первый нос — сливочные конфетки, карамель, мармеладки — (как будто очутился на детском празднике). Глубже — выпечка и почти незаметный намёк на дым.

Taste

Вкус: конфеты, леденцы, сахарная вата и немного фенолов.

Finish

Финиш: средней продолжительности, повторяющий вкусовую палитру, только копченые отголоски чувствуются заметно сильнее и выходят на первый план.

Comments

Вывод: аппетитный, интересный, конфетно–дымный виски.

Оценка: 84 (n22,t20,f21,b21)

Оценка: 84 (n22,t20,f21,b21)


На мой взгляд, образцы виски Yamazaki и Hakushu без указания возраста при сравнительной дегустации оказались немного интересней своих 12–летних собратьев.

Au nez,des épices,de l'herbe,des fruits verts!
En bouche,c'est simple,frais sur les pommes-poires fraîches,retour d'épices assez fines,un peu de fumée ou d'herbe séchée fumée!
En finale,simple ,moyenne sur les mêmes arômes.
Efficace sur le vert floral desséché !

Hakushu ‘Distiller’s Reserve’ (43%, OB, Japan, +/-2017): 79 Punkte

On the one hand this is both available and relatively affordable, which for Japanese whisky in 2017 is sadly unusual. On the other, this Hakushu doesn't offer the depth, complexity or indeed balance of its 12 year old sibling. This said, as an introduction to Japanese whisky you could certainly do worse than this. Don’t be afraid to give it a go in a highball (with soda) or as a Mizuwari (with water).

2nd Tried:- June 2016

N- Persistently sharp with acidic green fruits, green apple and tangerine peel. Quite closed, mineral, cedar wood, but the smokes is missing on this expression.

P- A little young, but with substantial strength, good depth and flavours to excites. Sweet and sour fruits, butter cookies and caramel over supple minty smokes, subtle vanilla.

F- Medium-long. Warm and spicy oak mouth coating. Dry and building and gum tickling.Lightly rough, but with plenty of good.

***

First Tried:- Jan 2016 / Weighted Rate:- 79pt

N- Exceedingly candy, almond custard and chewing gum on nose. But there are also fragrant of pine and smoke lychee. Constant nose warming a reflection of the grassiness, herbal and gingery characters.

P- Soft and gentle with dusting floral and fresh mint leaves, rounded with tropical sweet fruits. A pleasant and basic drams, but are not to compared with his aged siblings.

F- Unexpectedly long with crisp restraint herbs spiciness remains. A return of almond custard at the end.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
