General description

A whiskey you can smell for hours without taking a single sip.


Dark honey, blueberry jam, dates and a little grassy. Basically dark fruits.
You get a feel of creaminess.


Creamy, velvet, smooth.
Dryness and some Roasted/toasted oak falvors along with chocolate, dried prunes, dark fruits and light orange peel nicely wrapped up in a cloth of vanilla and dark honey.


Short finish but refreshing and calm.

That's a great one, perhaps a bit overrated, but to be met once in life!

General description

1/28/15. 93/100. Very good, not worth $225. Suntory has gained tons of rep over the last few years and for good measure, this stuff is good. Great balance of earthy and high citrus peats, more earth-centric. Smoke is there but well integrated. Palate is full, heavy, and lingering. Chocolates, smoke, orange oil, wet earth, tobacco leaf.

Sherry Notes and really smooth.
one of the best whisky I ever tasted.
