Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Deep gold color. Lovely opening aroma is delicately spicy and brown rice-like in its grain intensity. In the mouth, it’s dusty dry, softly spicy (ginger), nutty/nougat, cocoa bean-like and succulent. Aftertaste is creamy, viscous and wonderfully nutty. (Mar 2012)
Deep amber/ 18-carat gold color; impeccable purity. This seductive opening aroma is gently spicy, malty and almost brown rice-like; the secondary aromatic profile is fully integrated, dusty dry, slightly woody / sappy and delicately spicy; understated, deep and enticing aroma of the first rank. Entry is firmly stuctured, moderately oily/viscous, mutty and candy bar-like; midpalate stage shows off a richness that's world-class, toffeee-like and woody / resiny. Ends richly, understated, nutty / nougaty and drier than the other two Suntory whiskies tasted for the issue. Excellent quality. Spirit Journal- Highly Recommended
