Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The liquid has a shimmering, deep gold hue, almost amber-like, with an appealing oily texture that clings to the glass, foretelling the whisky's rich character and full body.
An aromatic bouquet of oriental spices, including subtle notes of cardamom and clove, greets the olfactory senses. These are followed by a complex layer of dried fruits, especially apricot and fig, intertwined with a gentle oakiness derived from its unique Mizunara oak maturation.
Kaiyo Cask Strength is a robust whisky, as one would expect from a cask strength offering, yet it retains an elegant harmony. The palate is inundated with flavors of honeycomb and caramel, countered by a pronounced spiciness. Mid-palate, tropical fruits like lychee and papaya make their presence known, adding a dimension of freshness to the profile. The higher alcohol concentration intensifies the flavors without overwhelming the balance.
A long and warm finish lingers on, characterized by the ever-present Mizunara oak influence. Hints of oriental spices and a residual sweetness create a satisfying conclusion, beckoning for another sip.
Despite its cask strength nature, the whisky presents a surprisingly smooth and well-rounded mouthfeel, achieved through meticulous blending and maturation. It offers a luxurious texture, reinforcing the overall complexity of this Japanese masterpiece.
