|A personal favorite here|
Bottled at 60.0% vol. cask strength with 405 bottles. A bottle did initially cost around 150€ I believe. Worth noting is the beautiful golden-orange color.
- Nose: A lot of oriental spices, juicy sweet oak, sandalwood, a tiny bit oak in the background, thick and rich, with water a bit more oak and a tad pepper
- Mouth: Spiced syrup, light whiffs of Japanese curry rice, oak, some sweetness but generally more dry
- Finish: Very long, warm, spices, sweet oak, a bit flower nectar, soy sauce in the background but without saltiness
Comments: Amazing! Very unique and loaded with flavors on different layers. A lot to discover everywhere and just a pleasure to drink. It's usually really hard to come by a whisky aged in mizunara oak, so if you get the chance to sample or buy it make sure to take that chance to experience something quite unique!
