Kirin - Fuji Gotemba - 50°

And another bottom shelf whisky. This time the Kirin Whisky 50° from the Fuji Gotemba distillery. The 50 suggest the 50% abv. which makes this one stand out a bit from the usual cheap whiskies. Costs around 10~15€ if  I remember correctly with 600ml bottle size.

  • Nose: Fruity banana, earthy and some light oak, a touch alcoholic
  • Mouth: Malt, light sweetness, green vegetables (green pepper'ish)
  • Finish: Sweet malt, a touch sherry, chocolate, oak
Comment: For the price quite complex and strong enough for some experimenting with water. Maybe a touch too young and a little bit too much caramel... otherwise recommended.
