Tasting Notes

"A new, reasonably priced Japanese whisky is a welcome sight, especially one that's completely distilled and aged in Japan. This is a young and fairly light whisky, with a distinct cereal note coming through on the finish. Up front it's a bit fruitier, with suggestions of pear, banana, and creme brulee, plus a bit of elderflower. A pleasantly sweet contribution from the bourbon barrels makes this an easily enjoyable blend."
