Umeshu Yamazaki Whisky Blend Rich Amber Plum Liqueur

I like umeshu, but usually it is a little too cloyingly sweet for me. I like Choya's black sugar one.... This umeshu is fantastic. Probably my new favorite. It isn't as sweet, and the whiskey flavor creeps in after the plum starts to fade. Oishii! — 6 months ago

Château Beaumont

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2015 vintage. This estate is owned these days by Grands Millésimes de France (also owner of Beychevelle), 50/50 owned by the big French Castel group and the Japanese Suntory. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. Flirting with overripeness, but still with just enough acidity to keep the balance, this is a seductive crowdpleaser that lacks a bit of complexity. Abv. 14%. — 3 months ago

I agree. It’s very elegant but not very distinctive.

@Aaron Tan I had to go back and reread my Tasting note. It certainly was good. Just spent 10 days in Scotland and had a great visit to Glenmorangie Distillery in Tain. As per James Forsyths recent tasting note I was amazed at the different barrels their malts get matured in - from Sherry to Bourbon - even Sauternes.
