Suntory White Super Clean 37%abv

Year of release: 2000 (new version of the original White Blend)

Nose: Varnish, cheap nail polish remover, a hint of non ripened white peach, very grainy, slightly dusty, waxed floors, and super glue. After 15 minutes left in the glass a reasonably pleasant citrus aroma becomes present.
Taste: Given that fact the nose has industrial qualities the mouth feel is quite smooth. However, there is not a lot happening on the palate besides a mineral taste, grain, cabbage water with a pinch of white pepper followed by Scotch tape and envelope glue.
Finish: A hint of white pepper, then Scotch tape before a very short ending of again envelope glue.
Comment: A mixer indeed. Although the above does not sound that pleasant this blend isn't that bad when used in a homemade highball. I presume the representation of "Super Clean" comes from the low ABV. This bottling of the new version uses the familiar shapped bottles used in the Owner's Cask series.
