Bottled exclusively for Shinanoya, Tokyo, the liquid is dark copper in apperance. The sweet yet spicy character of the whisky can be detected on the nose and palate resulting from the time spent maturing in a first fill Spanish oak butt.
On the nose there are aromas of citrus fruits, sweet cherries, dark chocolate and honey. All wrapped nicely together with a hint of tobacco.
The flavour is bursting with rich fruits and sweet spices followed by notes of hazelnuts, vanilla and raisins. The long-lasting finish is full-bodied, fruity and creamy with a slight spiciness.
