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.

Nose

Robe. Or Ambré, larmes corpulantes et nombreuses. Grasses.

Nez. Premier abord sur la tarte tatin, raisin sec, fumé de manière très fine. Noix. Vieux Rhum. L'influence du littoral est claire, iodé. 

Taste

En bouche c'est très doux, salé - sucré et épicé, fumé, pâtissier. 

Les fruits à coques.

Écorce d'orange grillé, un côté banane. 

L'influence de la tourbe se traduit sur la viande salé séché, iodé et marin.

Parfaitement équilibré et fin ! L'élégance et la droiture Japonaise au millimètre.

Finish

Finale chaude sur l'iode et le sel. Marin. Amertume agréable sur la peau de citron. La longueur n'est pas exceptionnelle, une vingtaine de secondes.

Comments

Un beau whisky sous l'influence du Sherry.

Aujourd'hui vendu à des prix prohibitifs.

Rarissime.

S'il fallait lui donner une note subjective, ce serait un 86.

Zurück bleibt eine isolierte dumpfe Süße, wie ich sie auch im Nikka ftB finde - und von der ich kein sonderlicher Freund bin.

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Vanille, komplex, etwas Torfrauch, Jod, leichte Gewürze (Nelke?), Meeresküste, später exotische Frucht und Süßholz

Taste

Zuerst überraschend kräftige Süße, dann deutliches Malz, Mango, Drachenfrucht, etwas Malz, Eiche und vorreife Banane, schöne leichte Torfnoten dazwischen (aber sehr dezent)

Finish

Hier kommt der Torf und das Röstaroma zurück, mit leichter Salzigkeit und der exotischen Frucht, die auch bleiben

Comments

Sehr interessante Kombi aus Exotik und Rauch und Salz, sehr einzigartig japanisch

Color
Burnished
Nose

Cedar wood, nicely balanced with fruit - the darker kind (plums, blackcurrant). Nice touch of polish wax (menthol). 

Taste

Gentle woodiness of pine trees, again nicely balanced with fruitiness (dried fruit like apricots, with later on some pear coming through). Grassy notes. 

Finish

Keeps lingering.

Comments

Nicely balanced. Tasted on 13/11/2016 in a Japanese line-up (WB ID's 70236, 5443, 9252, 38412, 6016, 71248 and 20342, in that order).

Old gold
Nose

Quite a savoury smell, something like damp wood. Certainly very different from most Scottish malt whisky's.

Taste

Again savoury, now with a hint of peat on the background. Interesting, but well defined.

Finish

Short finish and a bit rough with the burn of alcohol in my throath.

Comments

Nice enough, but the quality does not justify the price tag. Could use some more age before bottling.
