A fresh and fruity whisky from Yamazaki, full of red fruit and a touch of the sherry cask. It's also got some mizunara (Japanese oak) matured whisky in the mix, which comes through as a complex spicy and almost incense-like note. A well put together and deep dram.
Expect an abundance of red fruit again, with raspberries, strawberries, and even redcurrants coming through, although there are more dimensions to this than the first wine cask sample that we tried. White peach, a hint of wood and spice, back-up notes of red cherries, and candied fruits all come into play here as well.
