I have always wanted to try Japanese whisky, so I bought the sister to this From the Barrel while that is to die for. (You really do have to try it) paying so much for 50cl doesn't make it that attractive an option.(unless you can afford it) So hoping to get a little more bang for my buck I next went for this which comes in a 70cl bottle, It is noway near as good as the from the barrel whisky. Don't get me wrong its good, but placed against the other, there simply is no comparison. Oh by the way this gives the Scottish Whiskeys a run for their money. The former is well out in front.
