Member Ratings and Notes

N: Sherry, Nutmeg, Cinnamon. Right away this reminds me of nitecap in Tokyo after a night of exploring... Like a mini Nikka 10 baught at a convienience store.


P:  Coffee, Caramel, so light with some complexity. Dessert.


F: Toffee, Sherry, Mint, & Dark Chocolate. This is too easy to drink. Almost too easy. Wish it had something more interesting to finish on. Nonetheless, I'm a fan. 


n:  New car smell after 1 month.


p:  Blendy and a bit perfumey like fresh laundry.  Thin and watery mouthfeel.


This seems like an average Japanese blend pretending to be a higher end Japanese whisky (thanks to all of the insane whisky awards)




-After an entire bottle of retries-


This never fails to disappoint.  Every time I forget how much I  dislike it I end up repouring and get disappointed again.
