Whisky Reviews for Taketsuru Fortune'80

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.33 points

  1. Armin Fuchs scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nice balance of sweetness and spiciness.

    The finish (for me) is a little bit too pushy floral and unpleasant ...
    • Nose
      Oranges, plums (just at the beginning), hints of warm apples with some cloves, indefinit exotic fruits (with banana, mango etc.), light smoke, scouring powder, wood & cask spices, some honey, Minestrone, sometimes one could find some peat (?), later some leather appears, some vanilla, caramel cream.
    • Taste
      Leather, citrus (later also lemon), burnt sugar, charred wood, smoke, herbs and salad, grapes, bread, green fruits, pears, some 'floral' flavors, dusty feeling, old wood.
    • Finish
      Vegetables, smoke, charred wood, citrus, fruit & sugar sweetness, tobacco leaves, creamy, grilled fish without spices, tart vanilla sauce, banana, old books, fruit brandy; 

      later buttery, like you would have a piece of butter in your mouth.
