The name Kensei is taken from the title traditionally given to exceptional warriors. It is therefore fitting that this whisky certainly packs a punch. It has been blended from a selection of Japanese whiskies all of which have been aged for at least four years in small oak barrels.
The youth comes across in its rather sharp and spicy taste meaning that a little water is advisable to take the edge off. With water, you get to enjoy a fruity and balanced whisky with a long sweet finish.
NOSE: Fresh and full of citrus fruits with plenty of oak spices and hints of vanilla.
TASTE: Spicy and smooth. A little water brings out masses of citrus fruits, oranges, lemons, and limes as well as an underlying salted caramel sweetness that sets everything off perfectly.
FINISH: Fades fast but with plenty of sweetness. Moorish.
