Exceptional in almost every way, apart from the small bottle!
on 25 August 2015
One of the good ones, and the first Japanese whiskey I had the pleasure of owning a bottle of rather than buying by the glass. What an investment! The bottle is too small as I'm afraid you're likely to just keep wanting more. Flavour wise it doesn't taste close to its 51% in terms of bite, but it's there in terms of flavour, everything I hoped for and more.
It was recommended to me as a gateway to Japan by a true connoisseur, dangerous advice, I'm now buying more. The massive boom in Japanese whiskeys that is gathering pace is pushing the price up, so strike while the iron is hot, if you can splash out a bit I'd also advise buying some of the Nikka aged bottles, they're vanishing fast and the prices is shooting up, once you've tried this you'll want more, best to buy before they become unaffordable.
