A blended whiskey that is not well known outside of Japan, and made very much for its domestic market. This is a blend of malt and grain whiskies. On the nose, buttered fruit cake, peanuts, chocolate and hints of spice. The palate is 'cakey' cherry bakewell and walnut loaf. Dusting of black pepper and nutmeg. The finish is sweet with dried apricots and touch of oat. Great in a highball.
