Non-Chill Filtered

Bottle only (no box)

Kirin's 'Fuji Gotemba' Distillery, located at the base of Mount Fuji, produces three type of grain whisky in addition to malt: light - from a column still, medium - from a kettle and column, and heavy - from a beer column and doubler.

Chief Blender Jota Tanaka has favoured the medium and heavier grains along, of course with malts, to create the Fuji Sanroku 50. It is the first permanently available entry-level Japanese blended whisky which is not chill filtered.

Nose: Huge dollops of caramel, honey and vanilla are immediate and pronounced. Biscuits, baking notes are supported by black tea and earthy hints.

Taste: Good mouthfeel, strong on the biscuits again with sweet grains taking centre stage. Grape juice is mixed with some peppers.

Finish: Short to medium favouring cocoa/chocolate and vanilla.

Pretty impressed with this. A warm, sweet and inviting nose is matched with a taste which is well balanced - sweetness never becoming cloying.

The high ABV of 50% provides substantial punch and good mouthfeel, but does lead to a fairly aggressive arrival.
