Kirin – mythological creature and beverage company in Japan. You've tried Nikka and Suntory, so why not try a blended whisky by the other beverage giant all at a bargain ¥880 for a 600ml bottle. Let me romatisize this simple blended whisky for you: The water used in whisky production at Fuji-Gotemba is taken from underground springs that are fuelled by melting snow from nearby Mount Fuji I. Ex-Bourbon barrel.
Nose: fairy floss, popcorn, sherbet, rosemary, very sweet profile
Taste: preserved plums, caramel, dates
Finish: fairy floss, slow wave of white pepper on the end
50% ABV for a blend and for the price is a knock out, albeit sweeter than most local blends. For the ABV and the fact it's a cheap priced blend, this is a smooth finish. You can't go wrong for the price. Drink it neat, on the rocks or as blends are made for in Japan: in a highball.
