Matsui Mizunara Cask
Single Malt — JapanReviewed May 28, 2023First off, everything about this whisky is subtle. The nose is sweet and fruity, suggesting grape or syrup notes. The palette is a fascinating combination of spicy, sweet, and bread (wheat or cereal) notes. The finish is especially subtle, with the palette notes mostly fading away into a clean, smooth finish. This whisky distinctly reminds me of good tequila.
KUJIRA Ryukyu Whisky
Single Grain — Okinawa, JapanReviewed May 28, 2023The nose is subtle, but hints of sweet and medicinal notes, with the sweet note tending toward syrup. The palette starts off just slightly sweet with a light honey note, but then quickly transitions to earthy notes, surprisingly (and interestingly) tasting of mushroom. I finally know why the"Funky" tag exists in Distiller. The finish is very smooth and subtle, mostly carrying the funky mushroom into the belly with a hint of cinnamon. Fascinating.
