  1. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    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.

  3. Kumachan scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    A beautiful whisky under the influence of Sherry. Today sold at prohibitive prices. Extremely rare. If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 86.
    • Nose
      Dress. Amber gold, corpulent and numerous tears. Grasses.
      Nose. First look at tart tatin, raisin, smoked very thinly. Nuts. Old rum. The influence of the coastline is clear, iodized.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is very sweet, salty - sweet and spicy, smoked, pastry. Nuts. Grilled orange bark, one side banana. The influence of peat is reflected in dried salted, iodized and marine meat. Perfectly balanced and fine! Japanese elegance and righteousness to the millimeter.
    • Finish
      Hot final on iodine and salt. Marine. Pleasant bitterness on lemon peel. The length is not exceptional, about twenty seconds.

  5. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    What remains is an isolated dull sweetness, as I find it in the Nikka ftB - and of which I'm not a very special friend.
    • Nose
      Iodine, caramel, musty, leather, vanilla, trail mix, blackcurrant, licorice, licorice, peppermint liqueur, some vanilla
    • Taste
      soft and at the same time powerful and intense, malt, iodine, icing sugar, the iodine is stronger, cinnamon, salt liquorice, mocha, ginger, clove, raisins, smoke, pears, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, black tea, vanilla, leather, pepper
    • Finish
      short, leather, ginger, roasted hazelnuts, vanilla, dark chocolate, peat

  7. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very interesting combination of exotic and smoke and salt, very unique Japanese
    • Nose
      Vanilla, complex, some peat smoke, iodine, light spices (clove?), Seashore, later exotic fruit and licorice
    • Taste
      First surprisingly strong sweetness, then clear malt, mango, dragon fruit, some malt, oak and ripe banana, nice light peat notes in between (but very subtle)
    • Finish
      Here comes back the peat and the roasted aroma, with slight saltiness and the exotic fruit, which also remain

  8. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    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). 
    • 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.

  9. OpiumX scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

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