Hatozaki Finest Blended, 40%

Price: $39 Issue: Winter 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Spring flowers, vanilla, toasted coconut, lime zest, and cashew make for an understated nose. Coupled with its delicately light tone, this feels like it was designed for sipping while contemplating a zen garden. With Creamsicle, coconut, orange, kumquat, and fluttering spices, it is further enhanced by dried strawberry, raspberry, and a spicy aftertaste. Delightfully unhurried development of flavors.
