Nose
Sweet and enticing. Crème caramel, orange cake, shortbread. Barley sugar. Touch of water chestnut.
Palate
Rich, sweet and mellow. Mouth coating. Alcohol is perfectly tamed. Very satisfying. Cooked fruit with soft spices.
Finish
Intense, warm and lingering.
Comment
A liquid dessert. Reminds me of a rich Balvenie. Superb dram.

Nose
Gentle. Bread pudding, stewed apple, toasted rice. Slightly oily with some dried fenugreek, mace, apple skin. Has finesse.
Palate
Delicate smoky start. Cognac like: dried fruit, grilled nut alongside a haunting dried rose petal perfume.
Finish
Ripe, sesame, waxy.
Comment
Best neat. Has that classic ‘open' character that typifies Japanese whiskies.
