Dram Review: Fuji Gotemba Distiller’s Select 2016

[48.0%・NAS・Bottled in 2016・Official Bottling・Limited Release]

Nose:

Peppery and still quite new make-y, floral car fragrance with grain and char coming on.

Palate & Finish:

Somewhat new make spirit orientated, but it settles down for notes of lemon with brown sugar, chocolate dust and Italian herbs.

Rounded and gentle with some dried fruits.

Thoughts:

A mild dram that arguably got betrayed by the nose.
