Ichiro's Malt Wine Wood Reserve
Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:
Ichiro's Malt Wine Wood Reserve. 46 per cent alcohol.
Nose: Reminds me of some sherry cask Scotches (e.g Macallan 12) more than a wine finish. Marmalade, figs, oak, chocolate, wood stain, soap. A little spirituous, but that's probably enhanced by the style of the whisky.
Palate: Initially, very fizzy on the tongue. Orange sherbert? Brazil nut, bitter chocolate, raisins, pepper.
Finish: Pepper, marmalade, raisins. Kind of bittersweet. Quite long, with hot spices on the palate and then butter menthols.
