  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.

    I absolutely loved this Japanese whisky and would be excited to have it again if money wasn't a concern. Very different to most of the other Japanese I've had. Scoring highly because its rare to find a whisky like this at the price I drank it at! And, it was so good.

    • Nose
      Grated orange peel, light cookie dough, a little vanilla sugar. Red Apple. Rose petals. Garden soil, lemon thyme.
    • Taste
      Sweetish, spicy. Yellow apples, almonds, some pepper. A trace of wood ash.

    The last dram from the bottle:

    Nose:
    A fine-bitter woody smell comes from the glass - cedar and sandalwood. Add incense sticks and add a slightly smoky note. Nougat, dark and bitter forest honey, accompanied by the abrasion of orange peel. There is also dark, heavy fruit - plums, overripe sweet cherries and blueberries. But also a hint of banana. Menthol I no longer perceive. For freshly grated nutmeg, cinnamon and a little cloves. A touch of brown sugar and marzipan.

    From the opening to the last swallow, the initially very strong menthol smell in the nose became weaker, developing more strongly into dark fruits. Consistent were the wood notes and a light incense smoke.

    Mouth:
    In the mouth hardly changes to the previous tasting - cool-mentholiger approach, with some eucalyptus tingling on the tongue. Sweet notes of red fruits and Pithaya. Add to that leather and soft smoke, vanilla in honey and real nougat. Hazelnuts and some milk chocolate, a little cinnamon.

    Finish:
    Long, mentholig, on the mouth a little bit espresso-bitter, altogether quite dry in the mouth. After some time, hazelnuts remain in the throat, some menthol on the tongue.

    A great malt that gains time and oxidation in the bottle. From starting 84 points to 88 for the last Dram. This makes an average of 86 points

  10. Kumachan scored this whisky 86 points Expert 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.
