Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Flowery. Fresh herbs. Biscuity.
Palate: Lightly clean and sweet. Honeyed. Intense.
Finish: Burst of concentrated perfumy sweetness, balanced by cereal-grain notes and Japanese oak.
Comment: A pioneering malt in Japan, for which Suntory deserve great credit. In its early days, it was rounded and delicate, as though wary of offending anyone. Now it is more intense, confident and elegant.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean and crisp: dried herb, oak, nuts and slightly dusty malt.
Palate: A sweet start, some light smoky notes. Well-rounded with a dense, fruity mid-palate, though a little firm on the sides of the mouth.
Finish: Rich Tea biscuits, dried fruit and nut.
Comment: Well made. An honest citizen.
