Featured in the 1001 whiskies you must try before you die book

Featured in Ian Buxton's 101 whiskies to try before you die book

Simply one of the most luxurious whiskies on the market regardless of the fact that this is a blend and most people who try this blind would not guess it is a blend. This is however far from your humble blend but an award winning offering of all 17 year old (or older?) stock from the Single malt distilleries of Yamazaki and Hakushu and the grain distillery of Suntory, Chita.

Nose: Sweet and aromatic friut, rich toffee, honeycomb, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, peach melba, black cherry, frangipane.

Palate: Rich and juicy delivery with notes of chocolate, cherry, marzipan, rum & raisin, mocha, mint (after eights?) peppery and aromatic spice, toasted vanilla, dark honey, gingerbread, treacle tart.

Finish: French toast, toffee, mocha, minty chocolate, black cherry, creme brulee, treacle sponge and vanilla custard.

Great combination of sweet, spice, oak, aromatics and fruit and all in perfect harmony and did i mention how luxurious the mouthfeel and finish is on this? This is evidence that BLEND is NOT a dirty word when it comes to whisky as this would be on my shortlist of the truly great whiskies of the world.
