    Appearance: Straw gold. Slightly hazy.

    Nose: Fruity, citrus, stone fruit, Asian spirits, light smoke, oak, light nuts, touch of vanilla.

    Palate: Spicy, woody, malt crackers, stone fruit, cinnamon, vanilla, light honey. Rather original. Seems to have quite a lot of oak in there. Rather smooth, hiding the alcohol well. Quite malty indeed.

    Finish: Spices, oak, honey.

    With Water: Sweeter, slightly fruitier, honey and vanilla.

    Overall: Much better than expected. I heard that this was originally 15 years old, and I would not be surprised if some old spirit is included in here—others have claimed 20%. There is quite a bit of oak. Otherwise fruity and spicy, with just a touch of shochu-like spirits. Not as much as others have found—and mostly in the nose.
