Price: $90 for 700 ml
Distilled/Owned by: Shinshu Mars / Hombo Shuzo Co
Aged For: NAS
Mashbill: 100% malted barley
Drank: Neat, in a glencairn
Nose: Honey, malt, light smoke, oak, maybe a light fruit note buried deep down?
Feel: Light to medium body
Taste: Vanilla, honey, malt, oak, hay, and light smoke, “delicate”
Finish: Light warmth, medium length, malty with vanilla and honey notes
Thoughts: It’s a pretty basic blended malt with no real flavor popping out, but nothing offensive either. Tastes young, but not in a bad way.
Score: 73 out of 100
