  1. Pollenflug scored this whisky 60 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Seriously? A sea of ​​burning car tires and the smell of a burned condom factory flows towards me. Exorbitantly intense gum notes mate with my glass. Phew, I have to rinse it several times afterwards. The absurd idea goes on: Chemically, with plenty of glue (Pattex) and diesel. After 15 minutes, I perceive musty fruit notes. Rotten apples, a splash of lime juice and a little honey / vanilla follow. The anticipation of the tasting is about Marianengraben level.
    • Taste
      Very oily mouthfeel, pleasantly soft on the palate. The massive gum notes are strongly dominant at the beginning, but after a few seconds noticeable (thank God!) After. Smoke, diesel, bright fruits, vanilla and hints of spicy oak notes attract attention. If this violent rubber impact were not, the malt would not be so wrong. After all, I like the taste a little better than the nose - even if "fallen" is still expressed very euphemistically. The second sip makes the strange chaos on the palate not really better.
    • Finish
      Unfortunately, long. Plenty of diesel, smoke, some gum and a hint of vanilla make up the finish. Spicy notes flash noticeably. The oak provides a bit of bitterness at the very end.

  2. Noface83 scored this whisky 66 points Specialist

    Nose: damn own but also somehow interesting. Burnt rubber, NYM cable, cheese feet, lots of wood, behind the whole muff hides a malty sweetness, mint and some overripe plums
    Taste: Diesel exhaust, old gammeliger wood, in the sun more brittle gum ^^, much malty sweetness, black pepper and in the long finish is still a bitter oak note added.
    Have had worse but rarely what "own". I find the interesting and can well imagine the curiosity now and then pour into the glass.

  3. Volanne scored this whisky 5 points Expert Senior

    This is just unnosable, unpalatable, unswallowable whisky (?)

    Loads of bicycle inner tube. Have you ever tasted, on the tip of your finger, when you were a kid, this rubbery and bittery white powder you get in the inner side of a freshly cut inner tube?)

    Add a dash of rose water, some overcooked unrinsed rice that stayed in its staling water for some days, and you'll get the picture...

    Probably one of the very worst beverage I've been tasting in years.

    And I've tasted quite some.

  4. Macheye did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Virtually everything about this is wrong. The highly artificial taste is not only unappealing, it's also worrying - whilst sampling this, I worried what I was putting into my body and whether all of the fusel alcohols had been removed through the distillation process. Taking a prosaic view of this bottling, you could argue that it’s just a highly different take on malt distillation and part of the growing breadth of Ji-Whisky expressions. But, in all honestly, it’s just an unpleasant drinking experience that seems like a highly cynical cash-in on the global boom for Japanese whiskies.

  5. mothers_finest scored this whisky 64 points Expert Senior

    Weird part :) If it smells outside, like on the doorstep, like from this glass, then the environmental office is certainly not far, hihi ... Should you have tried to expand his whisky treasure.

  6. Okto-Bull did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This has nothing to do with whisky right now.
    • Nose
      Glue and burnt rubber; fermented plums and apples; with a little imagination there is brown sugar and burnt oak; it actually smells of cheap cognac rather than whisky; altogether very artificial the whole; The nose then makes absolutely no desire for taste and finish and costs me a lot of overcoming!
    • Taste
      stale apple juice; Oak ; slightly sour, bitter and metallic
    • Finish
      short (luckily); bitter, spicy and slightly spicy; no idea, really only disgusting!

  7. seidenpriester did not rate this whisky Newbie

    I was allowed to try Fujikai 2017 The most joyous thing I heard about him at the time was: "Russian Wehrmacht diesel". And yes, he is extremely idiosyncratic. The smell immediately reminded me of leather. And the taste went somehow in the direction of "ridden leather saddle". I could not sneak out much more than that.
    Making a review is difficult. Since he is not at all on my line and nicth enough for a mix, he gets a maximum of one point on my rating scale. Nevertheless: One should try this blast already. Just to have a say.

  8. Calmar scored this whisky 60 points Expert Senior

    Oh yeah, the real Japanese thrash whisky, the back side of the moon, we all certainly suspected that shitty Japanese whisky exists and so it turned out - that's it :)) Naphthalene and burnt plastic, a mass of shades of dust and insect repellent - not all "Japanese "are equally useful.
    • Nose
      Primitive, simple, dusty cardboard boxes, dry wood, some unpleasant mixture of herbs and grass, again dust, plastic, naphthalene, some sort of insecticide.
    • Taste
      Watery, again herbal-medicinal, unpleasant, oily, pepper, cardboard, burnt plastic, uzhos, in general.
    • Finish
      Pepper-dusty, astringent oak, plastic notes.

    This is utterly disgusting, dont buy it.

  10. waal scored this whisky 58 points Expert Senior

    Fujikai 10, 43%, WID: 71248 https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/71248/fujikai-10-year-old #WagnerAlexTastingNotes First impression: With massive reservations the good guy is coppery in the glass. Tearfully, tears are slowly trickling down the glass wall. Aroma: Sure - unusual but really not as bad as some described. So disgusting would be exaggerated, but still no enjoyment for a long time. What comes to my mind are: toasted (rye) malt, old gum and much older metal tools in a much, much older metal toolbox. So really dirty, oily old stuff. Positive I would like to mention the ripe mango, the apricot and the restrained fruit basket. Overall, it all reminds me of musty, cheap Obstler. Taste: Snappy, slightly sweet, strong woody influence and a lot of grain. Somewhat creamy vanilla flashes now and then. Finish / aftertaste: A little long finish with a metallic aftertaste. Dry and spritly. Again, the grain. Comment: Better than expected but still one of my worst so far. Only beaten by three Austrians and a Swiss (almost like ski jumping :-)). I would still advise to sample buying because it is interesting in any case and extends the horizon. Points: 58/100
