  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Definitive dream stuff, I always love those special parts that lead you all over the bazaar. Awesome.
    • Nose
      Woooow, what right Hanyu nerds, beautiful deep and full, pure aromatherapy, black cherry, all the oriental scents you can imagine behind it, frankincense, saffron, ginger, fennel, lavender, roiboos, green tea, cumin, five-spices, dates , Raisins, great, already cold incense smoke in the background with lots of tannins behind and then pure noble chocolate sauce, dark roasted coffee beans, licorice, anise, eucalyptus, pomegranate, later banana split, mahogany potion and moist tobacco
    • Taste
      Earl Gray tea, super sweet and dry at the same time, black cherry, camphor, saffron, dark honey, dates, raisins, turmeric, ginger, sweet licorice, incense sticks in the background, plum jam, anise, hints of frankincense, cumin, papaya and mango in sherry inlaid, truffle butter later, marzipan and cinnamon, blood orange
    • Finish
      Beautiful oak notes emerge more, dates, ginger, anise, lavender and cinnamon, long to very long and warm

  2. Hiroshi Ryutani scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    This is one of the most aged Hanyu single malt.
    The taste is lightly peated as same as other 1988, menthol, peach, cinnamon, especially well aged oak flavor, typical 1988 Hanyu taste and no negative impression.

    If you are Hanyu freak, you should try this.
    You may feel this is one of the best Hanyu.
