More grip than the first three. More of a sensation than an eruption of flavour.
From The Barrel
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: A wood in springtime: bark, moss and green leaves and a light floral underpinning along with rosemary oil. New car. Water makes it more dense. Coffee cake.
Palate: Discreet and soft with melon, peach, sweet persimmon. Dries towards the back where that mossy note reappears.
Finish: Tight oak.
Comment: More grip than the first three. More of a sensation than an eruption of flavour.
Nose: Fungal almost with a slight hot roast trout note. But there is also a delicate perfumed scent as well.
Palate: Balanced and complex. Has layers of sweetness with almost menthol.
Finish: Good mouth feel with a warming end.
Comment: A great engaging whisky, classic Japanese styling.
