Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic Ichiro's Choice SingleGrain Whisky 1981 62.4% Nose: Smooth for such a high alcohol content; earthy, notes of chocolate, liquorice, orange and asphalt. Palate: Again, pretty smooth with soft grain, molasses, liquorice, pepper and orange. Finish: Medium length: soft oak, orange, liquorice, with a mix of some classic rum (molasses) and Bourbon (liquorice, orange) qualities. General comment: A good if not outstanding grain whisky. Lacks the wow factor.
