Bottled at 56% vol. cask strength.
- Nose: Grapes, juicy raisins, oak, cedar wood, juicy woods, earthy (dry and sandy), with water even more woody aromas like sandelwood
- Mouth: Mild and round, malty and earthy
- Finish: Earthy again, oak, with water the finish is dryer and more oak and wood comes trough, green plants, long and fairly warm
Comment: Very oaky, but it works very well! No tanins or other negatives but lovely well integrated oak aromas (which are fairly typical for Hanyu in my opinion). A tad expensive maybe.
