Blended whisky from Nikka. A very good blend all in all, with plenty of malt and dried fruit flavour.
Nose: Malty, notes of cooked apples, porridge oats, pear, beeswax and honey.
Palate: Rich and malty. This is a simple blend, but one of great quality and balance. Notes of orange zest, toffee and oak, with hints of peanut butter and cocoa.
Finish: Decent length with stewed fruits, cloves, a hint of cinnamon and digestive biscuits.

Seems to be discontinued but can still be found in some shops in Japan, a very pleasant sherried dram, the tasting notes above are spot on, goes down ever so easy, very nice!

Nez: peu exubérant mais fin et élégant. Joli rancio fruité sur un boisé élégant, caramel au lait, céréales biscuitées et café au lait avec une trame mentholée et anisée. Bouche: bel équilibre entre douceur et sécheresse, de la rondeur, belle bouche parfumée et souple, goûteuse. Finale de longueur très convenable, un peu épicée, rétroolfaction sur les notes de sherry. C'est un excellent blend, proche d'un single malt par ses qualités olfactives et gustatives et par son équilibre. Un peu cher, mais très bon, et même meilleur que bien des single malt beaucoup plus chers. Doit s'ouvrir en bouteille pendant au moins une semaine.

Nose: Wonderfully rich, with plummy fruits and thick toffee sweetness. Milder cream and cereal. Apple comes through with water. Palate: Bright sharp taste - soft fruit swirls round sharp grain. Malt present, growing with time. Spice sparkles occasionally. The initial intensity of the nose is not repeated, however. Finish: Fruity malt, fading with a touch of spice, followed by creamy grain. Fruit again. I think this is a good whisky, but JW Black is £15 less, and most entry level single malts lie between... If you find a minature, and you've yet to try a Japanese whisky, go for it (that's what I did, and don't regret it). Otherwise, look elsewhere.
