Blair
Blair,
Strong sherry, subtle oak, citrus/vanilla on the nose. That sherry comes through in the taste, with a clear rice flavor. Subtle smoke, oak, and cocoa. Dry linger really brings the subtly sweet mochi rice flavor to the front. Overall, great east meets west blend of Sake and Scotch.

Really clean, nice smoky taste with a unique malt flavor, sherry sweetness is a nice finish
 
Elijah

Lots of sherry on the nose. Slight spice and oak initially. 8 drops of water in the dram really mellowed out some of the flavors and made for an extremely smooth and sweeter finish.

Sean
Sean,
Spicy/alcohol burn on the nose, though the sherry comes through. Sherry and oak definitely are more dominant in the taste. Maybe a hint of cocoa and vanilla.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
The sherry flavor overwhelms. Still an enjoyable taste, but not my favorite.

Very good Japanese whiskey. The aging in sherry casks really enhances the tasting notes.

Harsh...medicinal...the smell is offensive to the nose

Sherry smell strong before adding water. Taste was subtle and pleasant. With a splash of water it opens up with fruit and spice.
 
James
James,
Very good but can be better without the spice.

I rate this right in the middle for my liking. I chose it as part of tasting box. Good finish, not overstaying it’s welcome

bryan,
*My Ratings are Truth to me, a 10 better make me order the bottle no matter the cost! T hese are my own personal opinions. I am no expert. I thought this little neat whisky was tasty for my first ever whiskey club taster test. Agreed... Very clean and neat. I liked it, it has a friendly taste. It does have a sweet taste to it and is very smooth to drink neat. I did personally prefer it on the rocks and enjoyed sipping. I taste oak. Not a bad after taste, how ever, not my favorite. Vanilla aroma.

Strong spice and sherry flavors but smooth and easy.
 
Michael
Michael,
"Nose: Vanilla, some cherry notes are accented well with the sherry and a bit of the typical Japanese floral notes mixed with a bit of cooked grains Palate: Lots of Oloroso sherry notes and ripe cherries dominate the initial tasting. Very smooth with a bit of oakiness complemented by the floral notes again. It has a younger taste to it though. Finish: Citrus zest and more vanilla on the back end. Stewed stone fruits as well. A very good expression!"
 
David
David,
Sherry note is noticeable and welcomed. Great taste.

Sherry cask was better than expected.

Strong smoke outweighs the sherry. Tight drink with a quick finish
 
Jeremiah
Jeremiah,
Smooth, sweet, and exciting
 
Andy
Andy,
sharp nose, little Oak, lots of smoke and Ash. Very little citrus. Decent mouthfeel, good amount of Sherry a little fruit and Cocoa. For some reason reminds me of the ocean. Maybe salty. Not the most complex but very unique and fun to try.
 
Mitchell
Mitchell,
smooth caramel vanilla easy to drink
 
Chris
Chris,
I can certainly taste the sherry. Very smooth!
 
Ray
Ray,
Floral notes on the nose. Thick and coating with lots of subtle flavors of sherry, oak, fruits and nuts. Light smoke and not much heavy alcohol taste. Very good.
 
Nate
Nate,
Not a fan of the harsh, bitter aftertaste
 
Shane
Shane,
Everything described in the tasting notes can be picked out. Very smooth all the way through the drinking experience. Nice a warming as it moves down. Coats the mouth nicely. Very floral-sweet nose and fitting taste and finish. A nice smooth easy Whisky to have neat. When compared to the Fukano that I just sampled I would go with the Fukano as it was just slightly smoother on my palate.
 
Karim
Karim,
Harsh. Didn’t care for the sherry taste that overwhelmed this one. Better with a cube or two of ice
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Smokey and spicy. Lingering bite.
 
Gene
Gene,
Drinkable, strong vapor but, the taste it’s a light sherry caramel mouth feel. Not too sweet with a nice spice finish. My first taste of this box . I’m pleased
 
John
John,
Smooth with a nice sherry finish
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Sherry forward nose with hints of citrus. Smokey forefront followed by sherry and fruit on the tongue. Warm spice throughout. On ice smoke is subdued, more hints of the fruit, oak and nuttiness. Runs a tad too warm for an everyday drink, but it is decent!
 
Dezso
Dezso,
I love it! It smells good and tastes wonderful
 
Christian
Christian,
Definitely reminds me of a sake. Very light and smooth. Definitely strong vanilla.
 
Kerr
Kerr,
Not my favorite. Acidic tasting
 
Sean
Sean,
I’m not a huge sherry cask fan, but this isn’t too sherry-y. It definitely has the sweeter rice taste, but it’s pretty complex.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Sherry forward, mild oak, and a bit of spice.
 
David
David,
Spicy! I originally thought it was the alcohol burn but quickly came to realize that the dram has some spice behind it!
