'Sheer brilliance. An absolute must for anyone who regards himself a whisky connoisseur. 9.5/10' Jim Murray in Whisky Magazine, Dec 2000.
Nose: very elegant, starting on walnut cake and hints of gingerbread. Goes on with quite some vanilla and cinnamon, pollen, tobacco, etc.. Rather beautiful oakiness. Also fresh strawberries.
Mouth: creamy but nervous, with a smoky start, quite powerful and concentrated. Walnut liqueur, specular again like in the Miyagikyo, candy sugar. Slightly minty. Gets spicy (cloves), gingery
Long finish, faint cardboardiness, lots of spices, bitter chocolate, a little salt and various nuts. Bold and complex – different (very ‘Japanese’) but beautiful. 87 points
