    This was the first bottle of Japanese Whisky that I ever bought. I bought it in May 2006 on a business trip in Tokyo at Liquors Hasegawa. So it was always something very precious and special in my collection. Nevertheless I was a little sceptic when I opened it, considering the tasting notes on whiskyfun. But summarizing after the second tasting I must say that it became a positive surprise and I like it a lot. Probably storage for 7 years in the bottle have further improved it.
    • Nose
      Warming with delicious sherry and dark red fruits at first nosing. High quality sherry, sweet raisins, cherries and chocolate - reminds me of Mon Cherie. The typical dark sherry style that one would hope to find looking at the color of this bottling. After a while a few more oaky notes are coming up. Very tasty and no sherry monster at all.
    • Taste
      On one hand smooth and juicy, on the other hand rich and bold on a variation of sherry aromas and old wood. Notes of coffee, chocolate and prunes. Still lovely, although the old wood has some negative impact.
    • Finish
      Medium long with the old wood coming more to the fore, but still remaining pleasant. Also becomes dryer towards the end.
