70cl - 40%

Amber backed, coppery highlights. Warm nose, tawny, sandalwood, nicely cooked caramel, with a hint of acidity. Attack soft, enveloping, then develops a more assertive character, without losing its softness. Cooked apples, prune, caramel, bitter cocoa blend in a beautiful harmony that remains dominated by crystal malt.
Nice long finish, always on the harmonious sweetness. A beautiful Japanese version of serenity but also soft and of great aromatic richness.

We find all the aromas of the nose, with a little cinnamon, new leather and lots of spices. A little peat is even felt on the end of the mouth. A lot of roundness, but also a real character until the final, rather tannic and dry. A know-how perfectly mastered at all stages of development.
