High-class blend from Taketsuru, featuring a high percentage of Miyagikyo malt, which explains the vibrant fruitiness. This is aged for around 10 years in a variety of cask types, including sherry wood.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Clean and bright, with red fruit bursting out of the glass and glazed fruit-tart sweetness.

    Palate: Soft and fruity with spicy clove appearing along with a cherry-menthol note.

    Finish: The rich fruit lingers.

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Clean and bright, with red-fruit notes come bursting out of the glass, with some extra sweetness – glazed fruit tarts.

    Palate: Soft, fruity mouthfeel, then some spicy clove appears along with a cherry-menthol note.

    Finish: The rich fruit lingers.

    Comment: Fruit salad in a glass, this benefits from some time in sherry cask that adds richness and body.

    A blended malt. Sherried, red fruits, hints of coffee and tobacco, clove, ginger, nutmeg, raisins, A complex whisky. Name can be a bit misleading for uninitiated to malt whisky, who might perceive this to be a superior malt in some way, reminiscent of Cardu Pure Malt lol. A nice pleasant whisky with an interesting complex blend. Not outstanding IMO. Reasonable price.

    Sharp was my first impression, but more of an indifferent sensation because as it coats the mouth it begins to finish with a wonderful flavor profile before it quickly turns towards a slight burn that lingers. Overall I actually think it is a very good whisky for the price. I also tried it next to my 21 year Pure Malt, which is probably not fair as the 21 year is much more well rounded. I think its more of "apples and oranges" when you start getting into that conversation. Ultimately I would recommend sampling this whisky if you get a chance.

    Cannot but agree with other comments. Very sweet and leaves a pleasant oily mouthfeel. A bit disappointed about the lid. For that price I wasn’t expecting a plastic one.

    First hit is of raspberry and strawberry followed by a hint of cherry and spice. Slightly oily mouthfeel.
