  1. lincolnimp did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    This so called Japanese whisky is as follows:-
    The 15-year-old version of Togouchi's blended whisky. A combination of whiskies from Canada and Scotland, which are blended together and aged in a Japanese railway tunnel.
    I was actually thinking of buying this as I can get it for a decent price but it is not Japanese whisky so the actual description is a croc of shit.
    Canadian grain and Scottish Malts in a 15 year bundle at this price is ridiculous.It has already been mentioned on the forums by Slainte Math how slack Japanese bottling laws are, this is a perfect example.
    They are up front about where the contents are from at least but transporting them to a old Japanese tinnel does not make it Japanese whisky, this is whisky deception on an industrial sale.
    It should be called McTougouchi or Clan Togouchi at the very least, so the Scottish heritage of the contents is clear from the outset.

  2. WhiskyRanked scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Bold fruit salad, vanilla, and floral sweetness on the nose with some cookie dough underneath. A little brine. These continue on the palate and the fruit lingers forever on the finish. Nice rounded drop with the only noticeable imperfection is a bit too much heat on the palate.

    Some cookie dough hidden underneath. Also surprisingly hot on the palate but the vanilla continues and a little fruit is added that lingers forever.

    N- Candy shop with grainy oat notes, dried fruit, honey caramel and chocolate. Floral scents and pleasant. Spices, warm earth, vanilla, custard and get fuller as it breath. (87/21)

    P- Toasted oak-ed honey, candy and floral again, much the like and consistent as the aroma. Bright, pleasing and full at 43%. Spices and plum underlay. Delicious stuff but get a bit too sweet as the maltose notes opened up. (87/21)

    F- Long, minty, honey and high malt content in this blend. Rounded and smooth. Realised my 50ml sample gone in no time, so must be quite good. (89/22)

    B/B- 90/22 Always appreciate dram that can withstand breathing time.

    Cereal- 2, Fruity- 3, Floral- 2, Peaty- 1, Feinty- 1, Sulphury- 0, Woody- 2, Winery- 2, Spicy- 2
