A tonne of smokiness on the nose and botanicals. I got a sense of peatiness or earthiness, too. Taste-wise it's oaky, almost like smoked wood on a fire. Overall, a nice drink if you're into quite strong roasted/smokey taste and smells.
The finish is a lot better than the start. Starts off dull and unfortunately overpowers the sweet ending.
The intense alcohol smell and taste makes it a little difficult to snip. However, mixing with a little of water breaks it and make it smoother to drink.
I really have a hard time putting my finger on this one. Straight from the bottle it is a bit strong for me and kinda tastes like rubber. Just a sprinkle of water really wakes it up. If you do an ice cube, it'll turn back to rubber when the ice melts. Its complicated and even though it's not my favorite, I keep going back to figure out the complexities.
Oaky whisky with clear subtones of cherries in the background. Easy on the nose and to drink. Very elegant whisky. It might pair with cake
Smooth and good character.
Are you gonna finish your cake?
Smooth herbal and sweet. Well balanced and enjoyable.
Super smooth and gentle
Smooth but a bit more peaty than I was expecting.
A very pleasant nose is followed by a smooth, sweet, cherry/sherry taste with a bit of a peaty flair at the end.
Herbal up front with almost a peat/smoke taste.
Between the three provided in the taster, this was in the middle. Lots of aftertaste
Very smooth, a great intro to Japanese Whiskey for me.
Sweet honey nose. Medium finish. Slight spice on the back roof of the mouth and tip of the tongue.
Great finish, very smooth.
Very smooth, smoky and delightful
Very nice blend of herbs and sweetness.
The smoky roasted flavour is nice. I would say that there is a slight edge, or a bite, but it is flavoursome very drinkable!
Quite smoky and roasted
A bit too smoky for my taste
A little too smoky for my taste
Sativa, Marille (apricot Wachau), dried fruits and oak
Perfect fit for cigar!
Roasting was smooth. Oily consistency. Nice.
Nice front flavor of the oak and honey followed by the back flavor of sweetness that kicks in at the right time.
Rich. Crisp. Sweet. Heavy. Fullbodied.
Smooth and flavorful. Caramel on the nose. Apricot and leather tastes.
Smooth but overly smoky for my taste. Not peaty but smoky.
Only my fifth or sixth Japanese whisky but I’m now fully convinced that neither Kentucky nor Scotland have anything to worry about. This one tastes like that crap the dentist numbs you with before the needle comes.
Really nice smoky flavor. I just wish it had a smother finish. I little bite at the end. Altogether good flavor.
Darker, Smokey, a bit acidic
No bad at all, but from all the reviews I was expecting more, I’m a big scotch drinker and this at best was. I’d range scotch
I did not like this one at all. Very little flavor other than the very strong flavor of alcohol. The finish was very grainy and went down rough. I would not recommend this one if you prefer a smoother finish and more flavor.
Very smooth, yet more of a peety taste rivaling the best of scotches
Sweet, smoke, molasses, apple, leather. This one is a little too sweet for my taste, so not my favorite. Still good though....I liked it better with ice
Herbs and brown sugar on the nose, but very salty on the pallet. Decent honey aftertaste. Very nice and smooth. Awesome and very interesting whiskey
Pretty good... has a real scotch flavor .. Scotch isn’t my main choice ... but compared to scotches I’ve had it’s decent
I enjoyed the spicy after taste. Could really taste the oak.
This was not as good as I had thought, I was a bit disappointed. Yet it was worth tasting once.
A splendid drink - exceptionally smooth and easy on the pallet, this whiskey has long legs and is defined by a smokey, spicy nature.
Roasted and oaky with a oily finish. Not as sweet as I thought it would be.
Wood and coal and oil. Warm.
It is a very good,intense, blended Japanese Whisky with a complex birth; while a rich & oily life; leads to a long & crisp death with a hint of smoke.
Spicy and warm. Smoke finish
A fabulous easy to drink classic. Not at all heavy and very Morris’s. Highly recommended
