N: There appear to be significant amounts of grain older than 25 years in here, so much so theres even a little jam showing, amazing! It’s like its had a port finish too. Sour-cream and dense oak round off a very promising start
T: This is kicking off with lots of old, oaked maize. Its a thick corn syrup arrival with notes of marzipan, ginger, sour vanilla, years of oak - and again, suggestions of a port like finish.
F: Short and mild finish, of course.
C: It’s going to be too woody for some but it’s worth trying for the nose and arrival alone. Pricey though, around 30,000 [Yen]/£185 [March ’16]. It won ‘World’s Best Grain Whisky’ at the World Whisky Awards 2016
Scores a B 
N: This was so nice i simply had to come back for more. It’s like the Invergordon ’64 WB and the North of Scotland ’71 WB I’ve presently got open, vatted together. Fabulous, mushroomy.
T: Old tasting grain all the way - straight shooter with deep roots and a short flurry of deep ‘old’ cream
F: Straight maize finish
C: Good ‘ole’ grain, only 25yo but going on 40+. Same score
