65 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.01 points

  1. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The 10YO whisky is a sweet, a little bit peaty, salty, with black pepper and chocolate notes in the palate. The finish is a long, sweet, spicy, dry and lightly peaty. It’s an one of my favourite 10YO whiskies. 

  2. dram-drinker scored this whisky 91 points Moderator

    Rather dry but very good, nice wood and leather notes. Could be even better if it was a bit more fruity but it's still great - in particular considering that it is (only) a 10yo whisky.
    • Nose
      Oaky, leathery, nutty
    • Taste
      Oak wood, leather boots (but the good ones), dried fruits, apricots, little vanilla, subtle sweetness, pretty punchy
    • Finish
      Long and burning

  3. maltaholic scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Comment: Pure oak, very little smoke, very round, not too soft, long on the tongue, probably one of the best 10 year olds I know.

  4. Sandman scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Apricot, grapefruit, winey, hint of ginger and hint of horse stable
    • Taste
      Blood orange, earth, nutty, dried fruit and oak
    • Finish
      Medium finish, wax, vinous, spicy, nuts, lemon zest and ginger

  5. Saftkenner scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A great and oily malt. There are only a few 10-year-old standard bottlings at this level. Far exceeds 10 year old Yamazaki. More like 12 year old Yamazaki. More flavor, less fruit.
    If it cost € 60, as it did in 2012 ... that would be nice. At 120 €, however, my pain threshold for this bottle would be.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Very delicate and elegant smoke, a slightly salty freshness rises towards you. Some mint, honey, oak, orange and apple.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Strong and sparkling start. Amazingly oily for its age. Tidy oak cargo - the barrels worked well. Dark chocolate, honey, pear, oranges.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long finish. What remains is a delicate, chocolaty and pleasant bitterness, together with an orange aroma.

  6. ZeSaimen scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Nice 10 from Japan. Will probably be my last bottle - the price has risen abnormally! Shock!!!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Initially sweet fruit notes, minimal smoke that turns into heather smoke. Floral tones and notes of plum are recognizable.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sweet floral fruit notes with heather and plums. A couple of cherries flash.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Heather, plums, a little spice.
      Medium to long and very pleasant. No bitterness.

  7. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Calm and unhurried whisky, takes time to unfold, complex, taste plays the main role here - aroma and finish only create a background, frame it.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, delicate woody notes, lemon and orange peel, coated tablets, grain, light animal shades, some flowers and fresh grass, mineral tones - gypsum, drying plaster;
    • Taste
      Dense, rich, tart oak, grain, nuts, leather goods, lemon peel, coated tablets, sweet caramel notes, ginger, pepper wave, more grain in development, tablet shades, strong creamy sweetness appears, old leather goods, lacquer shades, industrial mineral motives, in general, adds strongly.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, oak, lemon zest, grain, a little ginger, leather goods.
