Nosing and tasting a whisky with such a profile I can’t stop thinking “what a shame they yanked it from the cask so soon”. Obviously very good distillate (or it would be much rougher at that age) meets a good cask making for a very pleasant, fresh, springtime whisky (especially with a good amount of water) but there would have been potential for much better, greater things. However, the distillery was restarted in 2011, operating again for a few months a year after a time of mothballing since 1992, so they have very little but young whisky to sell. If this ca. 4 yo. is anything to go by, there will be great drams ahead in the future! What does shock me, however, is the crazy price at just under 200€ – but then again it seems anything Japanese just flies off the shelves these days no matter the price…
