Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sweet, malty, flowery.
Palate: Crisp. Grassy. Almost herbal.

Comment: This was a pioneering malt in Japan, for which Suntory deserve great credit.
7.8
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Finely balanced; with assorted citrus notes.
Palate: Warming to the point of spicy. Lots of custardy vanilla and butterscotch.
Finish: Thinly textured. Disappointing.
Comment: Impressive nose and excellent body is undone slightly by the untidy finish.
