- Nice Jap!
Good herbal nose. Peat lurking somewhere..
Mmmmm... Tasty! Mellow, herbal taste. Really easy one. Different fruit notes present. Peat still lurking. Classy mouthfeel.
Medium finish. Peat still lurking, but infact it's perfect like this. Peat is there all the time, but doesn't take over at any phase. Leaves a really nice mouthfeel.
- N- Sweet black berries and rooty peat. Beefy with touch of umami. Firm.
P- Dry prunes and dates, Nutty and vanilla. Rusty earthiness.
F- Medium long, refine earthy smokes arise at the back. Refreshing.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- In all I found this a very friendly whiskey, fit for most occasions. In my opinion you can't really go wrong with it, and all of my friends that I gave a taste enjoyed it pretty much equally. Somewhat of an everybody's friend, then.
Relatively sweet scent, only mildly peaty.
Haven't tasted too many whiskies yet, I keep making the mistake of shoving my nose too far in there and singing my nostrils on the evaporating alcohol. Stop doing that.
The first touch on the tongue is fairly sweet and somewhat oily in texture, after which the taste quickly becomes more peaty. It's quite gentle overall, none of the tastes really dominate.
The aftertaste leaves a slightly sour, but not unpleasant sensation that dissipates fairly quickly. A touch of sweetness and oak stays present in my mouth for a short while.
- Not bad, the peat profile was very present but subtle, and there was some other interesting stuff going on aside from the peat. Felt a bit lacking in body though.
Mineral peat. Very medicinal. Aloe Vera. Melon. Peach. Vanilla. Floral note.
Salty wood. Earthy peat, light. Light peach. Bitter wood. Green tea.
Short Medium. Medicinal. Brine. Green tea.
- Pleasantly drinkable, relatively aged, alcohol inclusion could be better.
Distinct smoke, caramel, peach, toffee, vanilla. Something creepy.
Slightly alcoholic, oily sweet, coffee, slightly tart, herbs.
Goes with clear oak, toffee sweetness stands for a while. Short to medium long, clearly smoky.
