Suntory – Royal

Rating: 7 out of 10

Nose: starts off pretty glue-y and sour, but I think this is because the bottle spent quite some time on the shelf. Also slightly salty. Hmm…this actually has a very interesting nose. It’s surprisingly complex and busy. Almost a bit nervous. Fruity and spcy. Almond, pear and herbs. Vanilla. There are very clear notes of sherry- and bourboncask in here. It’s like they matured the grain whisky in a really high quality sherry cask, and the malt in a refill bourbon cask.
Finish: medium long, with citrus and something vegetal.

Overall a very nice and excentric blend. Recommended.
