Nez : Du sherry, des épices, du bois, des amandes, puis de la cannelle, de la vanille et la senteur de mirabelle...
Bouche : Du velouté, des fruits verts (pomme granny), de l'herbe fraîche
Finale : Boisée et épicée
déguste à l'aveugle!
(pas de cire,pas d'amertume,pas de citron retrouvé)
...en fait ,je dois être réfractaire aux fruits verts!

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Vinegary, sour, soft, herbal freshness, juniper, tonic water, hint of absinthe, unripe pears, green apples, white grapes, not too much of sweetness though, some vanilla, passion fruit.

Taste

Palatable, flavourful. Medium-bodied. Profound wood influence, oaky, vegetable, shredded cabbage, slightly salty, seashells, lemon, pith of orange, white dry wine.

Finish

Oysters besprinkled with squeezed lemon, lime zest, wormwood, parsley, hazels, walnuts, and a bit of soft spice. The aftertaste is particularly drying in its last stage.

Nose

The nose is sweet and fruity on vanilla and white appels (peelings included) and a lot of grain. Maybe even some lemon grass. The whole is light, inviting and a bit too well manered.

Taste

The attack is very weak. Light and almost watery. Lemon grass returns, with honey and liquorice, very lightly peated. Some spices. Midpalate it becomes a little less flat and emphasizes on caramel and the fruit. Sweet, I will give it that.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Finish

The finish is short to medium in length and somewhat drying.

Comments

This Japanese whisky is OK, but does not really impress.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Nose gives the sense of mint, grass, green apple, flowers, soap, malted barley, hay, light fruit sweetness and light root spices. Spirit is pretty obvious.

Taste

It starts with cream and pepper, a little bit of dryness, root spices, additionally, some smooth notes and sweetness.

Finish

Medium long with hints of mint, semidry with notes of roasted meat.
