Fruit and fruit and some more fruit. There are fruit everywhere :) Strong but not heavy. Very nice.

Awesome whisky. It starts with a surprising kick in your nose and finishes with a non ending prickling in your whole mouth. Highly recommended!

Zsolt,
Full of flavours and has a really serious finish - a bit too blunt for my taste

James,
As most Japanese whiskies tend to be rather sharp this certainly is no exception. Sharp and hot on the throat that being said it is nice on a cold day sat by the fire! Nice to have to add to the collection, Nothing will ever compare to Irish whiskey.

Appearance: gold. Spiced in aroma. Notes of wood and almond. A combination of almond, toffee and coconut and a hint of milk-chocolate in flavour. Finish: medium with fresh fruit. Overall, strong and complex. It's worthy trying.

My first experience with Japanese whiskey, and I was pleasantly surprised. Full bodied, rich flavours and a smokey yet gentle touch. Hontou-ni arigatou gozaimasu!

Collin,
Strong and powerful taste, full of aromas kicking in at the first sip. Then the flavors all come in mouth and let your palate enjoy the smoky, oily and fruity taste. it's a really good whisky with a lot of flavors, a bit too agressive (I prefer to soften it a bit with water) but the aromas in the end gives you a long oily finish that makes you want to take another sip !
