Fuyu - Japanese Whisky
A blended Japanese whisky made with malts and grains from distilleries on Japan's Honshu island. For those not keeping track, that's the main island of Japan, housing the lion's share of Japanese whisky distilleries. The label features some sort of giant snake/dragon with many people hands confronting a rightfully-confused chap with a sweet mask.
Nose: Greengages, sandalwood, a touch of earthy peat followed by slowly developing hints of buttered rye.
Palate: Rounded orchard fruit sweetness comes up against savoury grains and subtle nutmeg warmth.
Finish: Dusty oak and earthy vanilla pod.
