This whisky is distinguished by a harmony of the aroma of aged casks with sweet hints of vanilla and gently peat. The soft taste is elegantly deepened by a sweet and tangy fruitiness.

subtly nuanced complexity in the JP traditionA bit of sherry note, some smoke, the faint echo of some peat, and a finish reminiscent of ripe wild cherries...I'd love to ever find this one in the age-stated versions (ABC's pic's outdated, this used to be stated 12yrs but demand's taken its toll) in 17 & 21yrs as you can barely feel the 'metalli'c youth if you're an aficionado, but regardless of its relative steep appreciation in the past 3-5 years this is a terrific bargain of quality/price in the more steeped world of Japanese whiskies.

DisappointingThis is whiskey. It is not close to scotch. I make it into manhattans.
