Member Ratings and Notes
[No notes] 
N: Very interesting and sexy.  Citrus.
P: Incredibly smooth (and I never use that term, but this is very apt) but perhaps watery.
F: Mildly sweet but lacking.
I really like smelling it, but I'm just not enjoying drinking it so much. 
Nose is spicy oak, grain, cereal, lemon cream.  Plate is mix of sweet and woody.  Makes me hungry for sushi. Mild and nice.  Finish is very smooth and easy.   
My first Japanese Blend and its a whole lot better than most Scotch Blends.  The nose has some nice complex fruits going on but the palate disappoints like most blends.  Finish was weak and short.  But still worth trying. 

n: Light but nice.  Red oak?


p:  Thin and grainy.  Sort of inoffensive.  Oh well, blend.


for some reason, I feel like this is best "for relaxing times". 


N: industrial, wax paper, bazooka joe gum, lemon meringue, exotic wood

P: sour strawberry, bosc pear, grapefruit and wax

F: Salty




n; butterscotch, malt, fresh wheat rolls. Green banana peel, lemon grass, and light pine forest.


t: malt and vanilla chews. Waxy citrus with pine wax in the middle. Fades to a vanilla + butterscotch finish.
