David S.  •  12/15/2016  •  4.5

A pure delight! Depth, balance and complexity all wrapped in a single taste. Can't wait for the next!

Brad  •  12/15/2016  •  4.5

Sweet, sugary on the nose with accurate advertising -- light coffee taste, smooth, thick, caramel and lasts a while. Very nice.

Elliott  •  12/15/2016  •  4.0

Poppin coffey still goodness. Bourbon vanilla and rich chewy mouthfeel. This is a top notch sub-hundo pick.

Garrett  •  12/15/2016  •  4.0

Sweet and savory BBQ of sIngle malts. Not smokey; speyseid-like with deep ex-bourbon barrel finish. Way more cherry than the Taketsuru. Like a juicy caramel. Love it!

Kevin  •  12/15/2016  •  4.0

A burly yet nimble whiskey, definitely pick up the bourbon barrel finish.

Dennis  •  12/15/2016  •  4.0

Great fragrance like burnt honey. Viscous on palette with hints of sweetness. Butterscotch nose and flavor

Mike R.  •  12/15/2016  •  4.0

Light Honey color, Carmel vanilla notes. good weight but not heavy, creamy silky finish. Intensifies over course of taste, starts light finishes strong.

Marc  •  12/15/2016  •  4.0

More butterscotchy than A, sweet flowers. Feels more substantial on the mouthfeel. Vanilla on he revisit after D.

Darren  •  12/15/2016  •  4.0

Full flavor and substantial mouth feel. Less sweet than the Pure Malt Taketsuru Reminiscent of a pleasant pipe tobacco. Evolving complex finish.

Justin  •  12/15/2016  •  3.5

An open bag of stay puff marshmallows on the nose. Sweet and creamy...
