Member Ratings and Notes
N:Nice! Sherry and citrus, toasted wood
P: Very dry and flowery sherry
N: Long and lingering. Makes my mouth numb.
One more reason to visit Japan.
I wanted to chew this whiskey.  Almost Bourbon-like.  Woody goodness.  Long finish.  Tastes like a cigar bar.  Very delicious.
Strong, complex finish.  Zesty.  Made my mouth tingle.
Bourbony nose, bourbony taste.  Most notable here is the buttery, caramel-corn nose.  Long finish is.  Very enjoyable.
My favorite of the La Maison whiskys.  Bourbony, but not overwhelmingly sweet.  Really great balance.
