    Un nez excellent : épices, bois grillé, miel. Très doux et rond en bouche, sucré avec une belle note de miel et vanille. Intéressant mais manque de complexité.

    Nose - Clean apple/pear/Asian pear, barrel aged cider, dark honey, caramel. Taste - Dark honeyed light fleshed fruits, apples, Asian pears, hint of longan sweet/metallic, light pepper tingle, Asian pear skin bitterness/dryness. Finish - Light warmth, lingering Asian pear sweet (like it's been sitting out a bit & has oxidized to a light brown), honey. Score - 74/100 Final Thoughts - I will admit I got this bottle purely because it looked cool. The metal samurai topper is just amazing presentation. That being said, the whisky inside isn't horrible, but it isn't great either. Like a good majority of the whisky made in Japan, I think this was fully intended to go in a highball versus sipped neat. Neat, it's not bad, somewhat easy sipping, just not something I'd really reach for. The flavors are subtle but present, but are a bit one-dimensional and have a very "summery" feel that I think would be better in cocktails or a highball versus sipped neat. Would I drink it if offered? - Yes Would I specifically order it? - No Would I buy a bottle? - Maybe if they had another bottle topper design.
