BALANCE, BODY & FEEL
Perfectly balanced, round body and a slick light-syrup feel.
Ohishi Tokubetsu Reserve is awesome. It’s a crisply balanced whisky that’s densely flavorful and aromatic. The aroma is a deep nose-full of intense sherry-heavy whisky notes paired with the lighter sweetness of a stellar sake. The flavor is a palate-full of dynamic dark fruity and rustic flavors paired against light candy-like sweetness notes. This is a whisky I could drink any day; Ohishi Tokubetsu Reserve is densely flavored but crisp enough that it doesn’t overwhelm.
