  1. Othorion scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Aroma: raisins, white pepper, alcohol, pear

    Taste: spicy, alcoholic, fruity, raisins, slightly dry

    Finish: warming, medium, some fruit

    You can drink that, but the Burner is not.

    I was just curious to try it. Grabbed a bottle at the supermarket while tasting it, accompanied by red apples.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Direct understandable tones of dried fruits, raisins, prunes and apricots, a little spices, vanilla and alcohol.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, based on dried fruits, with a pronounced alcohol, but other tones are inferior and fast-paced.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Sweet, short-lived. But at the end there are raisins and prunes, although I was expecting alcohol.

  3. Highlander65 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    I taste this malt during my trip to Japan in September 2019, directly at the distillery.
    Very very good, drinkable and sensual
    • Nose
      The nose is sweet and velvety, smells of good fruit, sweet and custard.
    • Taste
      On the palate it evokes the same olfactory sensations
    • Finish
      Medium-lasting finish, all on sweet and persuasive notes.

  7. Cubey666 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nose: quite some strange exotic fruits such as lychees. In the taste more red fruits, such as strawberry and raspberry. The finish is quite long and pleasant and asks for another sip.

    • Nose
      The strawberry scent is emphatically present. For the rest, I can not discover much in it.
    • Taste
      I taste the strawberries and also a beech raspberry. The taste is also slightly spicy.
    • Finish
      This is long and is also quite sturdy

  9. Whisky-ettenleur scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Fruity and slightly spicy whisky with a fairly strong aftertaste.
