Tenjaku Whiskey Pure Malt is a Japanese whisky crafted from 100% malted barley. It's known for its smooth, mellow flavor profile with hints of honey, citrus, and spice. The whisky is aged in heavily seasoned Kentucky bourbon barrels, which contribute warming notes of vanilla and oak.

Description

Aroma

Initial Impression: Look for a sweetness reminiscent of honey or honeycomb. Light, refreshing citrus notes like grapefruit or orange peel might tickle your nose. Sometimes, a hint of pear adds a juicy quality. Subtle peppery spice, perhaps white pepper, can add a touch of complexity.

Deeper Sniffs: As you take a deeper breath, you might detect some grainy notes hinting at the malted barley base. Bourbon cask influence can reveal itself with subtle hints of vanilla and oak, adding a touch of warmth and dryness.

Palate

First Sip: The smoothness of Tenjaku is immediately apparent. Honey sweetness takes center stage, complemented by creamy vanilla notes from the bourbon casks.

Midpalate: The fruitiness unfolds, with melon or cantaloupe flavors emerging alongside a refreshing note of ginger. The oak influence becomes more noticeable, adding a subtle dryness and a hint of tannin.

Finish

Lingering Flavors: The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a touch of vanilla and a hint of warming spice. Some reviewers detect a touch of rye spice in the finish, adding a pleasant complexity.
