Ichiro’s Four of Spades Malt

Country: Japan
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Ichiro's Choice
ABV: 58.1%
Score: 83 points

This was distilled in 2000 at Japan’s Hanyu Distillery, and the nose is light and nutty with hints of grass and straw, coconut, hazelnut, and butterscotch. The taste is peppery, thick, and mouth-coating, and the initial spicy blast fades to reveal a slight cherry cough syrup note, black licorice, and a hint of menthol. The finish is aromatic and nose-clearing, but leaves a syrupy note in the back of the mouth.
