Mars Komagatake Moltage Sherry Cask 10YO 40%

japanese-whisky-080Nose: Honey, sherry, blood oranges, lime, a little bit of oak, a kind of burnt toffee smell, and something maritime, like seaweed.
It is biscuity, with some bitter chocolate, nuts, malt, toffee and smoke.
Mainly toffee, nuts, smoke and some lingering bitterness.
Last Word: I have to admit that on first opening I didn’t take much of a liking to this whisky and probably would have given it a score of around 73/100.It’s been open for around 7 months now and, while never going to be a world beater, it has improved quite a bit and scores. The smoke saves it.

Rating: 79/100
