  2. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    Appearance: Medium gold to pale amber. Not dark at all but noticeably darker than the NAS.

    Nose: Peat, raisins, bit of iodine, light cocoa, vanilla cream.

    Palate: Smoke, herbs, menthol, bit of oak, honey, vanilla.

    Finish: Menthol, oak, peat.

    With Water: More iodine and menthol.

    Overall: Peaty, but not smoky. Medicinal, with some sherry-like notes, and lots of herbs and mint. Ok but nothing special.

  3. Andytka3 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    N- More world blends from Japan. Sweet floral note with fragrant wood, some nervous caramel lurking at the border with little damage. Barley sugar in the fine cereal nuance. Soft chocolate, sort wool-y and fur-y lays on the hint of peat and earth. Ripe berries, tinge of clay-ish smokes. (86/20)

    P- Zesty and dry with subtle sweetness. Well integrated oak for the layer of fullness. Spicy sweet, rounded, some clove, spices, plum that surely quite 'scotch'. (86/20)

    F- Medium, dry, relaxing and more than decent dram. Sliced melon fruit. (86/20)

    B/B- 86/20 Apart from the authenticity of the origin, this is a good blends.

    Cereal- 2, Fruity- 2, Floral- 1, Peaty- 1, Feinty- 1, Sulphury- 0, Woody- 2, Winery- 1, Spicy- 2

    Weighted Rate- 80pt
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
