Blended with Japanese malt from Nikka's Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries, this is clean, fruity and very easy to drink.Tasting Notes (2)

Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Rich and fruity, with red berries and cherries and a touch of menthol and cassis.
Soft fruitiness, with strawberries the dominant note, accompanied by cherries and a touch of sweet spice.
The soft fruity notes continue.
Delicious, fruit-led whisky. Very refreshing.
Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky
Bright and fruity. Candied peanuts. Tahini. Peaches and cream. "Still, trapped air, like going into a tent, or a cottage or shack that has been locked up for a few seasons." Time allows some herbaceous (grass, parsley) elements to emerge and water softens the brightness and brings out a touch of peat, roasted aubergine/eggplant or soil. "Becomes outdoorsy". Again, bright and fruity, butterscotch. Sugary black tea. Fresh and lively. Fills out with some earth and peat, but remains confection-ary. Slightly smoky in the toastiness at the end. Water really exaggerates the earthiness and it becomes a surprisingly chewy whisky.
Perfectly clean, fresh, summery malt. I loved the oscillation between candied orange and earthy smokiness. Wholly unique, but to offer some points of reference, Kristin finds it comparable with a features of Bell's blended whisky while I find it shares features with Rosebank, unpeated BenRiach and young Talisker. Love the packaging, too. "Spirity. Woody. Sweet. That's about it. Blend-ish. Did they pour caramel into this?" To each their own.

A Good well balanced whisky. nose is fresh and fruity; a little water opens the oranges and smooths further. a lovely finish, with more orange peel. i prefer this to "by the barrel" by a distance. not cheap for a 50cl bottle but i must say this is the first japanese whisky i really like(with the water especially) struth
Amazing bottle, sad it has been discontinued
Tried the Black and red version of this, definitly a good japanese whisky
