This was a present from a fellow malt maniac in Japan. I am tasting it on a rather warm spring evening.

The nose is love at first sight: it is fragrant and sweet with hints of chocolate, marzipan and some toffee. This is a promising beginning!

The palate is full-bodied and equally sweet at first with marzipan and toffee, then turns slightly spicy and becomes peppery at the end of the tongue.

The finish is of medium length with a lovely bouquet of toffee and milk chocolate at the end.

This is a well balanced single malt that is very drinkable, especially on a warm evening. I did not even try this with water as it seemed just perfect without. Given its wonderful nose and well-balanced sweetness this might become a standard companion in my cabinet.
