This is one of the best value for money whiskies in the world. We are simply staggered by the complexity and depth of this whisky. At this price point, it would be hard to recommend other whiskies for a remotely similar price.
Nose: A flurry of bourbon notes: vanilla, sweet corn, cherry caramel. Then some herbs- dried thyme, coriander. Lemongrass and citrus rind- bergamot.
Palate: Close to the nose but with a sudden rush of biscuit with raspberries and walnuts. Vanilla, caramel, almonds and strawberries round the palate out. Very flavoursome indeed.
Finish: Medium short, spicy and a little oak.
Overall: A lovely Japanese dram of exceptional poise and balance. Perfect nuttiness sits alongside fruits and cereals delightfully. One to enjoy after long days.
