2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.67 points

  1. KGA scored this whisky 71 points Member Senior

    No impressive blend, was my first Japanese whiskey so I can not compare
    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity, apple, pear, citrus
    • Taste
      Goes on the same momentum, with a bit of spiciness but not prominent
    • Finish
      Rather flat and short of duration

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A very delicious blended whiskey, of course no> 100 € value, but very interesting to taste. Especially since I do not find it as Japanese as some others, with the pear notes are always found in them.
    • Nose
      Pear, pear peel, malt and vanilla, green apple, all very restrained and subtle, reminds me a lot of lowlands, dried grass, the grain is noticeable, you have this caramel / molasses-like touch behind everything, but very reserved as the Rest too
    • Taste
      Here, too, makes the Grain-share noticeable, you have green apples, fresh yeast, bread crust, pear, malt and the molasses with some caramel
    • Finish
      Delicious malt with apple peel, quite dry, medium long and warm
