The delightfully floral aroma wraps around notes reminiscent of Sake. There's prominent oak and fruit on the nose as well.

It's a deep and complex one. The brandy-cask sweet fruit notes are obvious on the palate with green apples and pears especially prominent. The oak spice rounds it up nicely.

James,
A very nice delicate whiskey. Nose is apple butter Taste is very delicate, very smooth. Faint apple & pear. Mild spice but no burn going down.A hint of vanilla. short-medium lived finish with oak coming through at the end I enjoyed this, but a bit too delicate for my taste to purchase a bottle.

Tracy,
So much happening on my tongue! First sip flavors have so much going on. The fruit, rice, marzipan and caramel are hitting my tongue at the same time. Pear and apple are right after that. The only whiskey I’ve had where I feel like a flavor story is going on in my mouth. Smooth with minimal to no burn. Aftertaste is the pear and rice.

Travis,
I’d call this unique and very complex with the flavor. Not like many other Japanese whiskeys I have tried. From a tasting box standpoint it was a cool one to try...whole bottle for over $75? Meh, probably not.

Buttery mouth that's reasonably hot on swallow and throat. Nothing particular as far as taste. So so.

Caramel Apple, oak and pepper, doesn't sound like a great combination but worked well for me.

Very warm and sweet on the nose. Lots of green apple and spice. Finishes sweet and floral. Very unexpected flavors.

My favorite of A Tale of Three Whiskeys! Very new to this but first one I could taste some of the flavors.

Such a great nightcap drink
 
Gregory
Gregory,
So so. A little spicy for me. I like the bite of a higher alcohol content. Not a fan of the rice base. I taste the apple, spice and oak.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Can really feel the brandy throughout, as well as the rice whiskey creation, i get some sake vibes as well. Real apple brandy on the nose. Very fruity palate with a lightness that reminds me of the sake. Has a spicy kick throughout and a bit of an American whiskey spiciness finish.
 
Brian
Brian,
I don't care for this one, or at least it's not what I expected. Upon contemplation, it'd probably be awesome in a winter drink due to having a district holiday-spice character.

Jeff,
Love the spice. Excited to explore more Japanese whiskey.

Michael
Michael,
I got this as a part of the tasting. I would like to try other rice whiskey. While this is not my favorite whisky, the spicy flavor is nice. I feel like the lower alcohol content helps this out. If the alcohol was higher than it would not be as nearly as good.
