  1. HokkaidoUni scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    This is a classic 83 in my book. Nothing wrong here. Nothing amazing.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Nose: bourbon. Some vanilla, sour mash, maraschino cherry. With water: some more fruit, maybe those Japanese green grape gummies. Maybe a little glue.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Palate: Some bitters, ribena, maybe a few cashew nuts. With water: a little more oaky vanilla.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Finish: vanilla and bourbon. Medium.

  2. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      sweet-fruity, floral, hint of vanilla, very pleasant.
    • Taste
      light spice, oak, sweet and fruity, mild
    • Finish
      light oak spice, soft, hint of tartness, then again sweetish-fruity, long finish, fruit drops.
