Distillery: Chita (Suntory)
Bottling: Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Cask Code: G13.1 "A complete revelation"
Cask Type: Virgin oak puncheon.
Nose: This is very spicy but seedy and woody spices like cinnamon, cassia bark, coriander seeds, fennel seeds. This is punctuated with balsawood and freshly cut timber. Very sweet and syrup like which is like Irn Bru, orange syrup or medicine. Sweet shop confectionary of pineapple cubes and soor plooms. Corn is evident and spiced kebab meat. Desiccated coconut and vanilla.
Palate: Very spicy and lively, but not too hot.
Finish: Finish not as long as I would have expected but the wood spices and orange flavours dominating and turning a touch spirity on the tail.
