Ichiro's Malt The Final Vintage Of Hanyu 2000 10-year-old
Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:
Ichiro's Malt The Final Vintage Of Hanyu 2000 10-year-old. 60.1 per cent alcohol.
Nose: Sandalwood, creme caramel, oak, nectarines, glazed orange slices, candied nuts.
Palate: Sweet and very smooth at 60% abv. More of the candied nuts and sandalwood, all spice, oak, toffee and a hint of pipe tobacco. A little water exagerates the candied nuts and tobacco.
Finish: With water it is smooth, sweet but not cloying on sweet spices, Asian incense, candied nuts and sandlewood.
General comment: Classic Ichiro's, tasty, and very Japanese, if you know what I mean.
