Blended whisky from Japan – 51.4%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Prunes, orange zest, toasted almonds, caramel, cinnamon, just a tiny whiff of smoke.
Palate: Prunes, caramel, oranges, smoked tea, nutmeg, rather dry.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly smoky.
Overall: This is a very high quality blend with a stunning density of flavours and an emphasis on sherry. The affordable price makes it a very good deal.
Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
