Delicious entry into Japanese whisky
I've had people tell me this isn't a "genuine" Japanese whisky, because it's blended with some scotch whisky. Nobody seems to know the percentage of "tainting" that is done.
That being said, this is a robust entry into what resellers consider Japanese whisky. It has a floral nose, with a touch of sweetness. That carries over to the palate, where there is a delicious blend of floral and honeyed sweetness, that provides a lasting sweet finish.
