Komagatake 2021 Edition, 48%

Price: $199 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Aromas of watermelon, ruby grapefruit, lychee, exotic florals, white pepper, and a little candy sweetness of Cola Cube and strawberry laces are in contrast from the chocolate flavors of the 2020 edition. On the palate, you couldn't ask for a juicier whisky; fruit salad with red apple, strawberry, watermelon, and that candy sweetness again before an edgier finish of bittersweet citrus and grapefruit acidity ushers in a lengthy fruity finish.
