7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.30 points
- Caramel, chocolate, orange, vanilla, varnish, very nice dram
- On the nose, caramel, chocolate, vanilla and noble wood galore, then orange peel galore!
return of musty, toasted!
glue, encaustic, varnish, then vanilla, caramel cream, white chocolate and fruits cooked on peaches and mandarins.
back woody, a little toasted.
- Nose: very sweet pear, unidentified flower, grilled meat
Taste: Caramel, fruity. Very strong in the mouth at first, but more and more sweet Finish: long, on the fruit
- Rather easy and pleasant to drink
Dried fruits, wood, vanilla, varnish. It's a little bourbon. Some caramel and the freshness of the coconut without the coconut (huh ... is it credible?)
Sweet, creamy, sweet, on vanilla and caramel. Hazelnut, wood and traces of coffee. Well integrated alcohol
Wood, coffee, vanilla, caramel
- A little young and modern whisky (caramel, vanilla), but a nice texture and a good size.
a little aggressive at the opening of the sample, a lot of caramel, coconut, vanilla, then it develops on chocolate, orange, dried fruits.
sweet enough for 58%, thick texture, sweet, lots of caramel, brown sugar, orange vanilla, tarte tatin, dried fruits, some spices.
good length but still a lot of caramel, a little more dry fries, nutty also now.
- Some thought this was a bit bitter, but it really works for me.
Malty and floral sweet with underlying passion fruit and then the malt returns. Hints of burning heather. A few drops of water and it explodes into a fresh flower shop.
Typical Japanese delcacy despite the strength. Floral toffee. Water Water brings nutty tobacco and more water softens it beautifully.
Very drying, takes a lot of water and then gets sherbetty. Yummy.
- Color: dark amber
quite restrained fruity nose : first alc and light glue, then young fruits (sweet pear) are also slightly malty, vanilla with a hint of woodsmoke palate: very sweet, alc, slight pungency. Fruity and again slightly spicy. Everything passes quickly and there is a residual sweetness on the palate. With water the sharpness loses something, drinkable and slightly spicier. Conclusion: Quite simple fruity Japanese, but also has nothing really disturbing.
