Ichiro's Malt Three of Diamonds - "butterscotch"

Hazy memory of this one, another of my tipples on my visit to the Argyll in Tokyo. It smelled of butterscotch and that taste met you in the mouth too: definitely Werther's Originals (I must have had a suppressed desire to gobble sweets on Friday night because everything seems to have brought up candy comparisons). Then, liquorice, along with Ichiro`s usual power finish: like popping in a Fisherman`s Friend with the remains of the Werthers?But in a nice way. Liked it.
