General description

Complex and light. Very fruity with hints of apples and orange. Very easy to drink with zero alcohol burn and a nice sherried taste on the finish.

General description

This whisky blend was a gift. Only bottles with the word "Scotch" catch me interest. Still, Ill give it a shot. Seems light on the taste, smooth, hint of carmel and some spice at the end. Not the complexity of a single malt. A few more drams are needed. Ill be back with a report soon.

Well ballanced, pretty smooth but not boring at the same time. Caramel and green apple, plus a little bit of spice

Los japoneses demuestran este excelente blended, ligero,fresco, floral, afrutado lleno de sutilezas....lástima que empiece a agotarse para dar paso al harmony sin edad anunciada (no lo he probado). Recomiendo Hakushu 12.... otra maravilla japonesa single malt en este caso. Merece la pena descubrir su sabor herbáceo mentolado. Saludos whiskylovers!

General description

Easily the best Japanese whiskey in my admittedly meager experience. Very smooth, with a very fruity flavor. In fact, I would have appreciated a bit more bite and some malty goodness. Still, it did convince me that there might yet be hope for whiskies from Japan.

General description

Light, fruity and smooth with no burn. Do not let the light description deter you. A delightful and flavorful experience which felt like a 23 year old whiskey experience and not 12.

Nose

Slightly fruity

Palate

Complex yet smooth fruit notes

Finish

Light finish leaving you wondering what just happened (in a pleasantly surprising kind of way)
