Suntory Whisky

I found this Japanese blend, bottled at 40% ABV, in the Esso station a few meters from my house in Singapore. The nose is fruity at first, with vanilla. Maybe because it was December I wrote "christmas pudding with custard". A little bite of alcohol also even at this low ABV. The taste is also fruity with some sweet and lemon notes. Very smooth and mellow. The finish is gentle and a little spicy. With a little water it becomes more honeyed and little grainy. Overall I prefer it neat. This really very good for a relatively cheap blend and also really good with mixed with soda into a highball.

    Deanston 12 year old

    I wrote about this whisky in a recent blog.... "Deanston and the Power of Suggestion".  The nose has malted barley, lemon peel, over ripe banana and even almonds.   Very fresh and enticing.  The taste is very smooth, sweet at first and then a nice ginger, spice and biscuit finish.  Like dunking a ginger snap in a hot sweet tea.  More spice in the finish and some new wood notes (cedar?) and even tobacco.  Very nice.
