Color
Beautiful amber color

Nose
The nose is very fruity with apricots and dried fruits and a shy note of honey.

Palate
For an entry-level whisky I'm seduced by its slightly oily texture which gives it body and overcomes its lack of complexity. On the palate, flavors of dried fruit and apricot are still present and confirm the nose. Thanks to its low alcoholic level of 40%, it can be very nice for people who don't usually enjoy whisky.

Finish
A short and smooth final with the honey notes back again.

"Grain whiskey assembly (1/4) and single malt (3/4) This blended whiskey is the expression of taste and Japanese skills: accuracy and balance of flavors, delicate texture. Tokinoka means "fragrance of time" in Japanese.

Light nose of dominant cereal and fruity (peach) and gourmet on honey and vanilla notes. In the mouth, a soft attack, then takes a lot of strength on the palate, with a nice power a little spicy. Very balanced, it has a nice aromatic range between malted cereals, fruit (especially peach) and almond and vanilla notes made by the barrel aging. The finish is long on malted barley, cream, vanilla and oak."
