Why are Singaporeans so eager to slam other Singaporeans? At the risk of getting the finger pointed back at me, I really want to say that all these complaints we have are about people in general. Singaporeans are not worse than other nationals. Have some respect for your country and your fellow citizens.
10-yr Fine Oak: For uber casual drinking, no outstanding characteristics. I’d mix this with ginger ale. Akin to a plain, boring girl whom you’d overlook at a party.
12-yr Sherry Oak: The first thing that hits you is the full, chocolaty nose, mainly from the sherry oak. Loved it at first sniff. Then, the warm taste fills your mouth and you’re intrigued, excited, and then… *splat* nothing. No length. Akin to a hot, heavily made-up chick who looks amazing from afar. And then when she opens her mouth you realise she’s all crass.
15-yr Fine Oak: Main thing is the citrus notes. Light and fruity and… not particularly special. I’d drink this casually, in place of a cocktail. Akin to a young, cute girl clad in orange and yellow and green expressions, matched with classy leather oxfords.
17-yr Fine Oak: CLASSY. Floral notes are most prominent. Clean, long flavor. Akin to an educated, slender, elegant lady dressed in a just-so classic shift. With a touch of sexiness.
18-yr Sherry Oak: Full-bodied, warm, again thanks to the sherry oak. I couldn’t stop sipping this coz it was my favorite of the lot, although it just wasn’t va-va-voom compared to the Yamazaki 18. I’d say it was akin to a hot, curvaceous, musically-talented mama with an uber cute bub on her hip, and no baby-daddy in sight.
