This is made by Saporo Shuisei, but the whisky in this blend is rumored to be from Scotland. Very light in the smell, but with a little burn to the nose. A little vanilla sweetness and oak. Very classic whisky (maybe more classic Scottish than Japanese) and very mild.
The taste comes with a great alcohol burn at first. Then some burned caramel and a bit of wood spices. Nothing else happens in the finish, and to be honest, it dies rather fast.
