Ichiro's Malt "MWR" Mizunara Wood Reserve
Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:
Ichiro's Malt Mizunara Wood Reserve. 46 per cent alcohol.
Nose: Quite gentle. The dominant note is honey. Also, lemon meringue, grapefruit and a little salt.
Palate: Pepper and white sauce over cauliflower. Ginger, lemon, grapefruit.
Finish: Short, with a little spice. Not a lot of power for 46 per cent alcohol, feels more like 40 per cent. Is this quite young, as I'm not picking up a lot of influence from the Mizunara wood? Easy enough to drink but not particularly memorable.
