Tasting Notes

Appearance: Honey gold

Nose: Insistent Sweet, floral, tropical fruits, mild honey

Palate: Smooth and steady Starts sweet, developing spiciness initially, fruity, creamy, mild citrus

Finish: Medium Sweetness lingers, mild spiciness, fruits and vanilla pudding

As with most Japanese whiskies I've tasted, this one drowns easily in water, so proceed with caution when tasting initially. Personally, I keep water far away from this stuff.

Conclusion: Lovers of Speyside and Highland single malts will enjoy this whisky immensely. It is a high-quality dram and has earned a permanent place in my collection. The upcoming price increase, however, makes an already-pricey whisky a little less attractive...
