  4. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Already a very easy drinkable, fruity Dram with a bit of Japanese-spicy oak, pleasant without being too complex.
    • Nose
      Intense fruity, berries, hints of candied peanut, peach, grass, a bit musty and very subtle smoke after a while
    • Taste
      Also clear fruity-berry first, grass, tea, some earth, and soft oak, candied orange
    • Finish
      Some toast, spice and oak, in the mouth remain summer berries and orange

    Oh, no, that's nothing. My first Japanese, who does not believe ...
    • Nose
      Smells very aromatic, light and young. Vanilla, a few herbs.
    • Taste
      Acts very pungent in the mouth, the alcohol dominates.
    • Finish
      Weak, unaromatic.

  8. Andytka3 scored this whisky 69 points Connoisseur

    Nose:- Toasted cereal and sweet minty chocolate, nutty and whiff of olive oil.

    Palate:- Dried fruits and oily vanilla come fore, tasty at first but odd spirit emerge at tail, and astringent built up.

    Finish:- Short-medium, minty and sweet spices. But exit with sharp and young spirit aftertaste. Husky and not very pleasant.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    A quick tasting in a wine shop.

    Nose - very sweet and fruity nose, vanilla, some nose.

    Taste - pepper, spice, lemon peel.

    Finish - medium/long, fruity, citrus.

  10. Shane_IL scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    My least favorite of the pure malts. Has a bit of a funk to it that doesn't sit well with me. Also found the flavour profile a bit dull.
    • Nose
      Herbal funk. Gooseberries. Plums. Peach. Ethanol. Young. Raspberry.
    • Taste
       Bitter wood. Vanilla. Pears. Citrus rind.
    • Finish
      Medium. Medicinal sherry funk. Butter wood.
