This delicious Distiller’s Reserve is a very fresh and fruity whisky from one of Japan’s very best. Powerful aromas of red fruit are complemented by oak and complex spices from the sherry casks. On the palate the red berry notes dominate with hints of white peach before the oak and spice return. This whisky has a very long finish, with flavours of vanilla and cinnamon evident throughout. This is a superb example of why Japanese whisky is now so highly revered.
