Ichiro's Malt & Grain Whisky, 46.5%

Price: $115 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Delicate aromas of chamomile, marigolds, gardenias, peaches, apples, and vanilla undergirded by biscuity cereal notes transition seamlessly to an elegant palate of vanilla, green apples, malted milk balls, and fresh herbs. The finish has gentle spice that fades into warm chocolate with continuing creamy grain. A blend of Japanese and other whiskies that responds well to water.
