Taster   Martine Nouet
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.

Taster   Dave Broom
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.
