Kohai on a mission
Tasting notesColour: Soft amber.
Nose: At first green apples, vanilla and oak. Adding water releases fruity flavours: grapes, pineapple and a small touch of banana. It 's all combining very well with a hint of cinnamon.
Taste: I'm getting (again) green apple with some spices, ginger and oak. Water softens the apple and adds some unripe bananas and grapes. It even gets a little 'nutty'. Finish: The spices warm your mouth for quite a while. There's some caramelized brown sugar that lingers in the back.
Conclusion: A young whisky that shows already some character with his fruity flavours. This 10-year-old is getting rare.
