"Fukano's "Vault Reserve" line features a blend of whiskies, some of which were rested in tanks after their time in oak. The result for their #1 release is a light, malty, and sweet dram. It's nutty on the palate, with notes of almond, straw, and a bit of herbaceousness on the finish. It's clean, approachable, and subtle."
