Fuji-Sanroku Signature Blend, 50%

Price: $44 Issue: Winter 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Fuji-Gotemba Distillery's talent for grain whisky is evident here, with a nose of waxy green leaves, whole peppercorn, and fleeting glimpses of lemon peel, lime zest, and white peach amid the airy, floral top notes. It has a serene, calming quality to it. Spicy pepper, orange peel, mouth-coating vanilla, creamy toffee, and crunchy apple, with a clean finish, like orange flesh laid out on

hot stones. JPY 5,000
