    • Nose
      82 82
      Strong deep smell, perfume, a little medicinal; hospital smell, fresh fruit, sweet, black tea, crushed green leafs, wet dirt, , very nice.
    • Taste
      78 78
      Very smooth, a little hay, vanilla.
    • Finish
      74 74
      Short finish, not too fancy.

  2. Myst111 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    The perfect starter for a tasting. There is nothing to complain about, but nothing that really excites you. Price performance is OK for a Japanese.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Creamy, light sherry, a little vanilla, candied fruit so a little bit of everything, well balanced but not really spectacular
    • Taste
      80 80
      Citrus fruits, well balanced, green tea, oak flavor.
    • Finish
      78 78
      short to medium, slight sharpness, dryness remains.

  3. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    elegance, roundness, simplicity, and sweet fruity.
    the kind of good Japanese blend, without much clean characteristic, but no bad surprise!
    well also in starter.

  7. 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

  10. maltaholic scored this whisky 68 points Connoisseur

    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.
