This was my introduction to the world of Japanese malts, and to be honest it set me in good stead for the tastes to come. Since trying this i have preferred the whiskies of Japan, enjoying various Nikka, Hakushu and of course Yamazaki malts.
It starts smooth, as i find most Japanese whiskies are, very easy to drink, but without the kick, strength and power you tend to find with older malts. The smell isnt over-powering at all, drawing you in from the moment you open the bottle, and gives you a taste of the joy that can be open to you if you spend the time to work your way through the other Japanese malts.
I enjoyed it and as i mentioned i found it a good way to start with Japanese whiskies. With that in mind, if you havent tried any, then this would be a very good starting point!
