Color

Nose

des épices,du malt,du caramel et de la colle d'amandes,typique d'un mélange de graines pour moi!

retour alcooleux
Taste

de l'amande,une senteur de mirabelle vite effacée par du raisin blanc et de la poire,c'est doux,crémeux,mais aussi épicé,trop pour ressentir pleinement,ça se noye dans la bouche

Finish

courte,monolithique,ça "pique"!

Comments

un blend japonais pour ceux qui n'ont pas goûté,c'est simple,sans saveur,ce n'est pas écoeurant,mais ça ne casse pas 3 pattes!!

bien pour un starter!

N- Milky and full on a layer of sulphur, earthy peat, nail polish. Brown sugar and wood branches emerge after breathing time.

P- Fat with trace of soapy. As like most PM, lightly hollow in the middle. Interesting spicy and peppery backnote.

F- Rather short, with peppery and dried fruits interplay.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

citrus, sweet malt (generic), red wood, sugar

Comments

this is a very good example why the Japanese whisky hype has gone too far, this is nothing but an overpriced basic malt and/or grain blend

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Very closed, almost like a dilluted blend, not revealing much

maybe a faint hint of green apples
Taste

Initial taste confirms the dilluted blend feel of the nose, taste like I added too much water and I added none...

No texture, extremly fluent
Slight sweety maltyness
Finish

If there is a finish it is the vague malt and some spice, but very short.

Comments

Would make a great introduction to a malt sceptic.

Tasted together with the Nikka Pure Malt, and I prefer this as it lacks the grain spirit feeling of the Pure Malt. Still, a lower score as there is less of everything.
