Deep copper in color with thick legs. Pronounced, seductive aromas of cream sherry, red fruits, spice, malt, toasted oak, almonds, and mince. Palate coating, luxurious mouthfeel with very balanced alcohol. Additional flavors and aromas of honeycomb, nutmeg, vanilla bean, dry grasses, leather and even a bit of cigar box or cedar. Finish continues for well over a minute. Absolutely exceptional expression of exactly why everyone is going nuts for Japanese whisky!

Am I allowed to rate a "scotch"? Well then that's okay cause this black label is from Japan. And she is very tight very hot and smooth. A ghostly caramel touched perfume will haunt you after an night with this beauty.

Nose: apple, hint of rose with ceder, caramel & vanilla

Palate: red apple, spice, cigar. Long finish with medium mouthfeel. Lovely.

Smooth, sweet and spicy... but well balanced at the end. Gotta love this.
